We bought a pineapple broom three years ago and though it has grown really tall and looks healthy we have never had flowers on it. It grows against a wall in sunny but sheltered position.


On plant Cytisus battandieri

These do best on lighter soils which haven't been enriched with compost, etc, so if your soil is rich and heavy, it won't bother to flower. They also shouldn't be fed, producing more bloom in poorer conditions.
