In Southern England. Three year old thriving plant about a metre tall, pruned after flowering last year.
Came into flower about 10 days ago Now almost totally reverted to green. Is this usual? Can flowering be prolonged/May 3, 2023 at 2:20 pm ReplyNate from N&GPrivate messageGreen Thumb (moderator)
Hi Mike, welcome to the forum!
Normally Cytisus should bloom longer than just ten days. Maybe it suffered heat or lack of water? That would certainly shorten the blooming. Perhaps other members can help, too.

Do you remember how long it bloomed last year? Some varieties have short-lived flowers. In my garden they last about a week, what happens is that some are in shaded spots, these bloom a bit later than the parts in full sun. All in all I get about 3 weeks of blooming but it’s more like a rolling bloom. It’s a hedge is why I have several.
