Details

Ornamental plant grown for its spectacular and abundant yellow flowering in spring. It was traditionnally used for making brooms, palisades, or natural roofs.

Cytisus scoparius is very resistant to cold, wind, drought, and is useful to stabilize or fill slopes and will grow in the most difficult and poor soils. Fast growth.

The wood of Broom is highly sought by artisans.

An essential oil is extracted from the flower (perfumery).

The flower is used in the European Pharmacopoeia, and the plant has medicinal properties Anti-arrhythmic, anti-rheumatic, cardiac, Cathartics, diuretics, emetics, and vasoconstrictor. Its medicinal use must be tightly controlled because of alkaloid effects on the heart that make it a dangerous plant to use in self-medication.

In spring, the young shoots and the flowers are used as a source of Dye for vivid yelows and greens with high light and wash fastness. A brown dye is also obtained from the bark.
