Description
This dwarf broom makes a delightful shrub for rockeries or softening the edges of sunny borders. The slender, arching stems of Genista lydia form a dome-like habit that is covered in a profusion of bright yellow, softly fragrant flowers in early summer. Awarded an RHS AGM, Genista lydia is low maintenance and positively thrives in poor, sandy soils. Height and Spread: 60cm (24").

Plant height and spread is seasonal therefore we list by pot size rather than a defined plant size. The height and spread of the plant delivered will vary depending on the season, meaning arrival images are an indication only.
