Argyrocytisus battandieri, the pineapple broom[1] or Moroccan broom[2] is a species of flowering plant in the legume family, Fabaceae, subfamily Faboideae. It is the only member of the genus Argyrocytisus (formerly Cytisus battandieri).[3][4][5]

A native of Morocco, it is a substantial deciduous shrub growing to 4 metres (13 ft) tall and wide, with trifoliate grey-green leaves, and erect racemes of yellow flowers with a distinctive pineapple scent. Grown in a sheltered location, it is hardy down to −15 °C (5 °F).

The cultivar ‘Yellow Tail’ has gained the Royal Horticultural Society’s Award of Garden Merit.[2] It was introduced to the UK as recently as 1922, and for a long time was thought less hardy than plants have proved.[6]
