Coronilla are flowering plants from the family Fabaceae which are native to Europe and parts of North Africa.
What is a Coronilla?
Coronilla are hardy bushy shrubs usually around 1m tall although they can be taller particularly if trained against a wall or trellis. They have attractive green to blue green lobed small leaved foliage that is variegated in some forms. Coronilla have masses of fragrant yellow pea like flowers in winter and through spring into summer depending on the variety chosen.
Where to plant Coronilla?
Coronilla prefer a sheltered spot with full sun and moist but well drained soil. Smaller bushy forms can be grown in patio pots but the usual way to use these plants in the garden is to grow them as a wall plant.
How to care for Coronilla?
Coronilla are easy plants to look after. Water pot grown and young plants during dry spells. Prune back damaged or unwanted growth after flowering. Large plants can be cut back quite hard if they are getting too big.
