Growing Genista

Latin Name Pronunciation: jen-iss'-tah 

This easy-care shrub thrives in full sun and average soil.

Fertilize Genista just once, in early spring, with a granular, balanced fertilizer such as 10-10-10.

Plants tolerate dry conditions and are deer resistant. If desired, prune after blooming to maintain the compact, low-mounding shape.
