85 Spartium Jungeum Spanish Broom
No. 85

Grows naturally in France, Spain, Italy, and Turkey; bears our climate extremely well; is a common shrub in our nurseries and plantations, which it much enlivens by its yellow blossoms: flowers from June to August, or longer in cool seasons.

Is raised by seeds, which generally come up plentifully under the shrubs.

Miller mentions a variety of it, which, as inferior to the common sort, does not appear to be worth cultivating.
