European Gorse is an attractive and resilient plant that would be an excellent addition to any garden. It is a fantastic option for hedging and provides unique nectar for bees and butterflies. Choose the appropriate container, soil, and watering needs to ensure the health of your Gorse.
The native range of European Gorse (Ulex europaeus) includes the British Isles. It is also known as Furze, Whin, and Common Gorse.
Ulex europaeus is the Latin name for European Gorse. It belongs to the Fabaceae family, commonly known as the pea or legume family.
Look for a 10 ft (3 m) tall, prickly, green shrub to identify Furze. This plant has small, yellow flowers that bloom year-round but are most abundant in the spring. Thorns cover the stems, and the leaves are small and scale-like.
European Gorse is an excellent choice for low-maintenance landscaping.
