A member of the pea family, this bushy evergreen shrub produces scented, pale lemon flowers for a prolonged period throughout the year. The initial burst begins in late winter and carries on, often well into spring, while there is usually a second flush in later summer followed by slender seed pods. A native of Southern Europe and Northern Africa, it is not quite fully hardy so will benefit from the protection of a sunny, south-facing wall.
- Garden care After flowering remove misplaced, diseased or crossing branches and apply a generous mulch of well-rotted garden compost or manure around the base of the plant.
