What plant is this?

warrierMay 26, 2014


I will appreciate very much if someone could identify what plant this is. I saw this at a friend's house and they were not sure what this plant was since it was planted by the original owners of the house.

Thank you

AH! I know this one. (I never do) Its a broom! We have the same kind in front of our house. It almost got killed by the snow drifts one year so we tied it to a stake. BIG MIS-STAKE. It didn't like that at all.

Looks like it is in the pea family, like a sweet pea. But I've never seen one that color.

Very old question. It is in the pea family but it isn't a sweet pea. It's Broom. Cytisus cultivar.
