Looking for a spiny shrub with vibrant yellow flowers that will thrive in full sun and sandy, neutral or acid soil? Look no further than Ulex europaea, also known as Furze, Gorse, or Whin. This deciduous plant is native to Europe and naturalized in the central coastal states of the US, although it is considered a noxious weed in California. It grows to a height of 2-3 meters and produces fragrant, pea-like flowers throughout the year, with the majority blooming in the early spring. While it may be considered invasive in some areas such as New Zealand, the plant has natural predators such as the gorse spider might and seed weevil that help reduce its spread.
