Coronilla valentina subsp. glauca 'Citrina'

Height x Spread: 90cm x 90cm 

Looking for something to brighten up the garden on cold grey winter days?  'Citrina' brings much needed cheer with its gorgeous display of small, pale lemon flowers held in crown-like clusters above neat blue-grey evergreen foliage, that continues well into spring.  Deliciously fragrant, make sure you plant it where you can enjoy its lemon scent as it intensifies in the sun.   

Native to Portugal, like many mediterranean shrubs it needs a sunny, sheltered spot in fertile, free draining soil with some moisture, but avoiding excess winter wet.  A site close to a south or west facing wall would be perfect, perhaps close to a path or in a container by a window.  A veritable bee magnet.
