Broom is an erect deciduous, spineless shrub that produces an abundance of golden yellow pea-like flowers. Broom is often grown for the spring flowers which have vanilla-like scent. Broom enjoys sunny, well drained, sandy soils. During the summer, the hairy black seed pods can produce an audible cracking sound as they explode in the sunshine. 

A light pruning or shaping can be carried out after the flowers have fallen.
