The Broom is a plant for a rock garden. These plants give origin to a brush with a rounded form. The Broom is small in size and 15 cm in height; in the summer it assumes a yellow colouring. These plants aren't evergreens, which means they lose their leaves some months during the year.
We suggest to position the The Broom in a sunny spot at least a few hours a day. We advise cultivating the The Broom outdoors, since it doesn't fear cold temperatures.These plants lose the aerial part during the coldest months of the year. As spring begins, stems and leaves quickly start to reproduce.
Water sporadically, with 2-3 glasses of water , leaving the soil dry for a few days before watering again; when watering we suggest avoiding excesses, but to wet the substratum well. Let's act every 1-2 weeks . Perennial plants are subject to some months of vegetational rest. During these months it isn't necessary to water them.
Generally during this time of year we suggest a pre-emptive treatment with wide range insecticide and with a systemic fungicide, to prevent the attack from part of the aphids and the development of fungus diseases, often favoured by a mild and damp climate.
We suggest a substratum characterized by an excellent drainage.
When wanted we can grow these plants in a vase. The indications given in this article are related to a medium size plant.
