No flowers or buds. Green bushels of rugged stocks growing along the path just as you walk off of the trail from Marsh Island.
just removed from matagouri shrubland by Matthew; there is much flowering broom through the basin at present :-(
Been sprayed but was re-sprouting!
extensive spread and flowering of scottish broom in upper Kowai River, showing its invasion of native grey scrub and eventually leading to aerial spray control and consequent further erosion of the native montane shrubland community (2nd picture)
Cytisus scoparius, the common broom or Scotch broom, syn. Sarothamnus scoparius, is a perennial leguminous shrub native to western and central Europe. In Britain and Ireland, the standard name is broom, but this name is also used generically for other related species (see broom), and the term common broom is sometimes used for clarification. In other English-speaking countries, the most prevalent common name is Scotch broom (or Scot's broom); English broom is also occasionally used.
