Q. Is it possible to grow Spanish Broom in the Philly suburbs?

I love the fragrance, but I suspect there's a reason I've never noticed any nearby. If I can't grow it in the ground, is it possible to grow in a pot?

Answer

Dear Gardener:  Spanish Broom is not hardy in our area.  It is native to Syria, Turkey, North Aftica etc. which are areas of zones 8-10.  We are zone 6B.  It does get quite tall to grow as a houseplant and does require full sun, so unless you have a greenhouse, I would think growing it indoors would be difficult.  It does have wonderfully fragrant flowers!
