New Broom

This is our new Broom. Cystisus Scoparius 'Burkwoodii', which according to this is named after Albert & Arthur Burkwood, famed plant developers in England in the early 20th Century. The flower color is extremely interesting, with yellows and reds but it registers as s deep rose.

We needed something to fill a largish space at the base of of the climbing rose which has stood empty for awhile waiting for the right tenant. The blossom reminds me of pea flowers and the twisting lines of the foliage are a great addition to that North West bed.
