Thankyou Sarah 4 for the link and yes that is definitely the plant I saw.I was thinking of buying one for my Garden but reading the info on it it would seem to be a fast growing shrub which may overtake the posisiton I had in mind.Really good info so thanks.Pineapple Broom.very appropriate.

I have just returned from Walton on naze and saw this shrub growing on a caravan site.The flowers are groups of small wisteria looking yellow flowers which look like small pineapples and it has a sweet pineapple smell.The leaves are hairy and silvery green on individual stems growing from new growth so not woody but has some older woody stems.The shrubs were aprox 2-3 metres high.Does anyone know what this plant is.the leaves grow in groups of 3 on a stem and are oval in shape aprox 7 centimetres long but vary.
