Cytisus battandieri is a tall Moroccan shrub or small tree, which was introduced as recently as 1922. It's best grown with some shelter from cold winds and in full sun, and makes an excellent wall shrub, where its silky grey-green foliage, delicate and laburnum-like, looks effective against brickwork and can reach 5.5m. Its golden pea-shaped flowers are gathered in large upright cones, and have a strong scent of pineapples. The Royal Horticultural Society has given it its prestigious Award of Garden Merit (AGM).
Grow Cytisus battandieri in well-drained, acidic soil in full sun. Established plants dislike disturbance.
