Valencia & Tenerife, Spain Es

Identification. I live in Valencia, Spain and bought this plant at a car boot last weekend. It looks like a dwarf laburnum and smells absolutely gorgeous. It is around 40cm tall and the woman said it blooms a couple of times a year, but she couldn´t remember its name. Can anyone help please?

It's Coronilla valentina subs. glauca. I have it in my garden, and it's true - it does flower at least twice! It will grow a bit more, but it doesn't get huge. It tends to 'flop' a bit, so I stake it.

Great find - I love mine!

Thanks again Spritz, worth 4€ for the smell alone ! Is it part of the laburnum family?

Yes - both in the same genus!

Family, not genus :-)
