Proven Winners® Scotch Broom

Cytisus scoparius

Proven Winners Scotch broom is not your typical Scotch broom: it grows with elegant, weeping branches that are covered in brilliant spring blooms. The flowers are much larger and brighter than other Scotch brooms, making for a truly memorable display, especially when paired with colorful spring-blooming bulbs like daffodils, tulips, and crocus. Scotch broom loves sunny, dry conditions, which the bulbs also like, so pairing these plants together works visually as well as horticulturally! After blooming, its graceful green stems are covered in tiny leaves, which provide a unique textural effect.

  • Light Needs: Full Sun
  • Height: 12-18"
  • Bloom Season: Mid Spring

Needs very well-drained soils, especially during periods of cold temperatures. Mostly maintenance-free, but if it does look a bit scruffy, you can give it a light trim after it blooms in spring.
