Spanish Broom

 

Spanish Broom (Spartium junceum) is a perennial, evergreen, nitrogen-fixing (leguminous) shrub native to the Mediterranean area of Southern Europe, Asia, and North Africa. In its native habitat it is found growing in full sun on dry, sandy soils. Spanish Broom does well in many New Mexico landscapes which have characteristics similar to its native habitat.

This showy plant can reach 8’ – 10’ tall and wide so plant it in an area large enough to accommodate its potential size.

Trees That Please Nursery has Spanish Broom available in 5 gallon containers. Our Spanish Brooms are just beginning to bloom.
