[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This beautiful spiny broom also has a strong sweet aroma/scent similar to narcissus and/or scented roses. One can smell its natural and sweet scent from a long distance, especially on a breezy day.

I am posting a workshop capture that shows the whole flowering stage and its habitat area/spot.


Calicotome villosa

Calicotome spinosa (known as thorny broom or spiny broom) is a very spiny, densely-branched shrub of the legume family Fabaceae which can reach up to three metres in height. It grows in the Western Mediterranean region on sunny slopes and dry, rocky ground. It is found in Spain, France, Italy and Algeria and has been introduced to New Zealand. From March to June it produces bright yellow flowers which are borne singly or in small clusters. The seed-pods are 30mm long and are almost hairless, unlike those of the similar species.
