Cytisus - Pineapple Broom Trees

Cytisis is a genus which contains around 50 species of flowering plants, and the genus has the common name of broom. The genus is thought to have originated in New Zeland. This genus typically has golden pea-shaped flowers in late spring or early summer, providing a burst of colour. One of the most attractive qualities of the cytisus is the fragrance of the flowers, and these are usually sweetly scented. The flowers are often yellow, although some varieties do have orange or white flowers.  The Cytisus battandieri (Pineapple Broom Tree) was named after the French botanist Jules Aime Battandier and its common name comes from the fact that its delightful flowers smell like cooked pineapple.

Cytisus battandieri - Flower

Cytisus battandieri

Pineapple Broom Tree

Cytisus battandieri, also known as the Pineapple Broom tree, is a semi-evergreen tree with highly scented yellow flowers. This tree makes a fantastic specimen and it is ideal for a sensory garden. The Pineapple Broom tree gets its unusual common name from the highly-fragranced flowers: they smell like cooked pineapple and carry the most deliciously sweet scent. The flowers are a truly eye-catching feature as they are a vivid golden yellow colour and they really stand out against the foil of the green foliage. The pea-like flowers are held in dense, upright clusters and they are present during June and July. If you want to attract wildlife to your garden, the scent of the flowers is somewhat irresistible to bees and you will find them buzzing around the flowers over summer. The summer flowers are accompanied by a mass of three-lobed silvery green-grey leaves, which can hold all year round in milder winters, making this a semi-evergreen tree. The leaves have the added attraction of a 'velvety' feel to them and they really set those summer flowers off beautifully. This Cytisus has an attractive open, spreading habit and makes an ideal lawn specimen. Equally, the 'Pineapple Broom Tree' is also a great choice for a sensory garden due to its wonderfully scented flowers. You could plant this tree on either side of a walkway or entrance to really benefit from the sweet fragrance of the flowers. In terms of partner planting, we would recommend the Laburnum Vossii as the pendant clusters of the Vossii sit beautifully against the silvery foliage of the Cytisus.
