Description - This grows as an upright shrub 1-2 metres in height, with dark green stems and small leaves, and large, scented yellow pea-flowers in April. The plant does not have the silver look, caused by dense hairs, of the subspecies Prostrate Broom.
Habitat - It is mainly a coastal plant, although occasionally found inland, usually in areas of poor, sandy soil.
Comments - This is not a very common plant. It is not difficult to distinguish from the subspecies.
