Description Q & A Description

Cytisus battandieri (Argyrocytisus) the Pineapple Broom originates from the Atlas mountains and is a rare but desirable small tree. The foliage is velvety in texture with a colour somewhere between grey and green; it is an attractive foliage tree which is only improved upon by the wonderful lemon yellow flowers produced in summer which have an amazingly rich pineapple scent. Regular pruning after flowering results in a lovely bushy tree. RHS Award of Garden Merit.

My pineapple tree arrived very quickly, well packed and looks healthy with no signs of damage upon initial inspection. Cannot wait to see and smell the flowers when they appear. Would definitely recommend Big Plant Nursery.
