About Dyer's Greenweed
Planta genista is a deciduous, spreading shrub with small, bright yellow, pea-like flowers. The Plantagenet kings and queens of England took their name from the Latin name Planta Genista which means used in dyeing. The young shoots and stems from some of the taller plants in the genus were once bound together for use as sweeping brooms.
