Cytisus battandieri, the pineapple broom

The pineapple broom in the sheltered scoop north east of the Rock Garden has formed a delightful round of pale pewter foliage, each tri-palmate lobe outlined in a fine line of silver. The upright, densely packed racemes of bright yellow flowers are continually combed by large bumbles, and have a fruity, pineapple fragrance. The buds are precisely placed in spirals around the raceme so as to look woven around the stem.
In the Leguminosae family and native to Morocco.
