Carmichaelia odorata

An almost leafless broom from North Island, New Zealand. It could well be hardy here but I have plnted it in the Agave House where it will be dry.

I was expecting the flowers the be scented but I can't detect it. In the conditions of the Agave House it has grown well, started to shade the Agave and shed its "leafless" leaves all over them. Unfortunately it had to go and although I would like to grow it outside I thought it was unlikely to stand transplanting. It didn't. If I had a sunny garden I would be tempted to have another go with a new plant, but the shade here means that I am unlikely to find a suitable location for another attempt.
