An incredible deciduous tree featuring pink and yellow blooms on the same plant! This cross between Laburnum and Cytisus purpureus (Purple Broom) results in an abundance of elegant, pendulous pea-like blooms in shades of yellow, mauve-pink and sometimes salmon pink. These attractive flowers appear from late spring through to early summer. Hardy and low maintenance, grow this spectacular plant as a specimen tree to appreciate its unusual flowers from all angles. Adam's Laburnum is slow-growing so is an ideal tree for the smaller garden. Supplied as a 50cm bare root.

Caution: All parts are toxic if eaten. Choose a position in full sun on moist, well drained soil. Incorporate plenty of organic matter, such as compost or well-rotted manure, into your border prior to planting. Plant bareroot Laburnocytisus 'Adamii' at the same depth as they were previously planted. Backfill the planting hole, firm in and water well to settle the soil.

These plants are lifted from the nursery field when dormant, and sent to you in late autumn or spring for planting. They often look dead on arrival, but they are just resting in the dormant period and will establish quickly for a strong start in the garden come spring. Set out in prepared soil in holes wide enough and deep enough to lay out the roots. Tread down the planting soil to knock out air pockets. Water well to settle. Apply a mulch to protect roots from cold temperatures. If conditions prevent immediate planting, set roughly into loose soil or a pot of compost (‘heeling in’) to protect the roots. Set these at the same level as they were in the nursery field – you should see a soil line at the base of the stem. Stake trees, taller shrubs and roses to prevent root disturbance.

Water regularly throughout the growing season until Laburnocytisus 'Adamii' plants are fully established. In spring, apply a mulch of well rotted manure or compost to the base of the plant, taking care not to mound it up against the trunk. Adam’s Laburnum requires little pruning other than to maintain its shape and remove damaged stems. Remove any suckers that arise from the rootstock.
