Description

Chamaecytisus palmensis

Synonyms: Cystisus proliferous

NOT FOR TAS

  • Evergreen small tree
  • Fixes nitrogen in the soil
  • Flowers attract bees

Evergreen small tree from the Canary Islands, growing to 5m but often pruned to 1-2m. Trees have a weeping habit, with 7cm long grey-green leaves divided into 3 leaflets. In late winter and spring scented white pea-like flowers that attract bees are followed by flat seed pods. Used in permaculture as a fast-growing nitrogen fixer for soil improvement, and as a wind break or fodder plant in dry climates; trees have long tap roots that help access water deep in the soil. Can be grown for shade and fodder for chickens, as a hedge, or as a graceful shade tree in large gardens. Also known as 'Tree Lucerne'.
