Spartium






SPARTIUM JUNCEUM (_syn S. acutifolium_).--Spanish, or Rush Broom.

Mediterranean region and Canary Isles, 1548. This resembles our common

Broom, but the slender Rush-like branches are not angular, and usually

destitute of leaves. The fragrant yellow flowers are produced abundantly

in racemes, and when at their best impart to the shrub a very striking

and beautiful appearance. For planting in poor, sandy or gravelly soils,

or amongst stones and shingle, and where only a very limited number of

shrubs could be got to grow, the Spanish Broom will be found an

excellent and valuable plant. It is a native of Southern Europe, and is

quite hardy all over the country. Propagated from seed.
