Genista sagittalis is commonly known as winged broom. It is native to dry grasslands, open forests, hillsides and mountain slopes from central Belgium south to southern Spain and east through the Balkans to Greece.
Plants are woody with stems that remain green year-round. It forms a low matted shrub to 1 meter across with somewhat upright stems to 15 cm. Yellow pea-like flowers are produced in narrow terminal spikes.
Tip cuttings about 3-6 cm may be taken in mid-summer and rooted in a mist chamber or shaded frame.
