This attractive member of the pea family can be seen at the western end of the Chronological Bed.
This species was introduced into cultivation in the early 1900’s. It has erect, dense, terminal flowers, each comprising numerous bright-yellow flowers, which give off a fruity, pineapple fragrance. These contrast with the downy, silvery, tri-palmate leaves. Cytisus battandieri is a native of Morocco, and enjoys a sunny position where it can reach 5 m in height.
