You can dance and you can jive but nothing is going to beat this garden dancing queen! Sister Disco® Scotch Broom (Cytisus scoparius 'SMNCSCRY' PP#30186) is exactly the spice your spring garden needs!

How often do you come across flowers that have two distinct and different colors per flower? It's just uncommon enough to make the neighbors wish they'd found it first!

Sister Disco® blooms in mid-spring, waiting until just the right moment to make its fashionably late grand entrance. The pea-shaped flowers are a bright yellow and splashes of radiant red throughout.

They'll bring images of flickering candlelight to mind with their warm and sporadic coloring. Or perhaps the vivid chromatics from the heart of the disco age!

Tearing your eyes away from the blooms might be hard, but if you manage to, you'll notice the florets are the toppers of gorgeous upright green foliage.

The leaves are small but abundant. They wouldn't want to take away from the show going on at the tops of the wiry green stems!

Butterflies and other beneficial pollinators will love stopping by for a snooze and a snack with this Scotch Broom in the garden. Sit back and watch your winged friends create a dancing delight of their own.

If you're often visited by hungry deer where you live, Sister Disco® is just the plant for you. They are quite deer resistant so a wandering Bambi will more than likely leave this flower alone.

One of the best qualities of Sister Disco® is its ability to thrive without a large water supply. It's the perfect addition to xeriscape gardens.

This flower is the cream of the crop and won't stay in stock long. Order a Sister Disco® Scotch Broom from Nature Hills Nursery today!

How To Use Sister Disco® Scotch Broom in the Landscape

Pairing perennials together is no small task. It requires planting species together that will bloom around the same time and near others with different bloom times. It can be a hassle but have no fear, we've got you covered!

Being a mid-spring bloomer, it'll go wonderfully as a companion to tulips and daffodils. Pick some out that will compliment Sister Disco's vibrant yellow and red flowers.

These flowers also make for energetic edgings. Line your walkways or perennial gardens with SIster Disco® to deter the nosey wildlife from exploring further.

If you happen to have a little more space, we recommend planting a bunch to create a gorgeous mass planting that would rival even the most prestigious botanical gardens!

Rock gardens are another area Sister Disco excels in. It gives a lovely textural effect to places that might suffer from a slight case of blandness.

Since this perennial does such a great job with minimal water, it's a great plant for xeriscaping. Not to mention, as a spring bloomer, it'll add color when most of the other staple xeriscape plants won't start their show until the summer.

Use it as an accent in your perennial garden or as a pop of color in the pollinator garden! The semi dwarf habit means you can plant it front and center without worrying it'll overtake the taller plants in the back. It's sure to get "oohs" and "ahs" wherever it lives!

#ProPlantTips for Care

Ever been told you have a brown thumb? Then boy do we have the flower for you. Sister Disco Scotch Broom is one of the most carefree plants around!

Simply find a nice sunny spot where this perennial can bask in the sun rays all day long. It loves full sun!

This spring-blooming beauty is pretty drought tolerant too once established. Well drained soil is all it asks for to stay happy and healthy.

Pruning isn't usually something that you have to worry about but if you'd like, let your plants bloom first, and as soon as the flowers are done then you can give your plant a trim to reduce the size or to shape the plant as needed.

It's always a good idea to add a layer of mulch starting about an inch away from the plant's base. Mulch keeps the roots cool and conserves water. Plus, it keeps the garden looking clean and pristine!

Adding a hardy and drought-tolerant plant to your landscape isn't something you'll soon regret. Order a Sister Disco Scotch Broom to finish your gardening projects today!
