This poor white broom really struggles in my yard. The reds and other exotic colors lasted no time at all. I don't know if they hated my land or the temperature was not right, but they were gone in a year. Most of this white has died back, and I am waiting for the blooms to fade before performing a bit of surgery on the plant. I think that the wind gets it in it's exposed position, while the yellow, below, is 7 feet high and thrives. As May is coming to an end, so are the blooms.
