Spartium are vigorous evergreen shrubs which produce masses of pea-sized flowers in Summer and Autumn. They are particularly good for gardens which are dry.

Spartium require full sun, but are happy in sheltered or exposed locations with any soil except clay types. The medium must also be well-drained, and poor soil conditions are also ideal.

The shrubs can grow to two and a half metres wide and high, however pruning each year after flowering should be undertaken to ensure successful flowering.
