Helping You Become a More Successful Gardener
Broom, Zeelandia Broom
Broom is a semi-evergreen shrub valued for its profusion of large, fragrant, pea flowers and named for its numerous, bright green, upright branches and long, rod-like, arching stems that crowd together and resemble a sweeping broom. This selection, ‘Zeelandia,’ produces sprays of creamy, lilac-peach flowers from mid-spring through midsummer that are highly attractive to bees. The flowers turn to hairy-edged green pods in fall that mature to black in winter.
Like most brooms, ‘Zeelandia’ is very drought-tolerant. It needs full sun and sandy soil with good drainage, and can be carefully raised in other soil types as long as they do not become soggy or compacted. Plant it as a specimen in mixed beds and borders or use it as a hedge on top of steep slopes and rough banks. The flowering stems are good for cutflower arrangements.
