Full Sun
This item cannot be purchased online but is available in our stores.


Can you dig it?Sister Disco® Scotch broom is a far-out burst of color for your spring garden. Each pea-shaped bloom is screaming yellow dabbed with bright red. This spring bloomer is especially when paired with colorful spring blooming bulbs like daffodils, tulips, and crocus. Sister Disco Scotch broom loves sunny, dry conditions, which the bulbs also like, so pairing these plants together works visually as well as horticulturally! After blooming, wiry green stems are covered in tiny leaves, which provide a unique textural effect. We do not recommend this plant for the Northwest.
