Is this a Coronilla it is of the pea familly, yellow flower had it for years but looking at the leafformation compared with the photos on line made me doubt.

It looks more like a Genista of some variety rather than Coronilla, but Seaburngirl grows Coronilla, she'll probably be able to say for sure.

Sadly I don't grow it though I'd like too. it looks like the one in the neighbours garden and that is a Genista.

oops, sorry, someone on here is growing it, I thought it was you Seaburn, but obviously not...

Thanks Bamboo & Seaburngirl I see the Genista is a broom never associated it as a broom. Had it for years but one hard winter I lost it but luckily I had taken a cutting so it is still with me some years later, but getting a bit old and straggly now I have taken some more cuttings and keeping my fingers crossed! It has quite hard wiry stems. I have a record of most plants I have bought over the years, but failed to find this one! and one day when I was least thinking of it Coronilla came into my brain!! but on looking on line had my doubts. Well I will keep my fingers crossed for success with my cuttings as I am a bit afraid to cut this back into old wood. Hope all is going well with you Seabg'l I am not having too good a time, but my garden is my salvation. afraid Grows on you gets neglected these days!!
