Useful Plants: Scotch Broom
I'm learning new uses for familiar plants from Rita Buchanan's A Weaver's Garden (Loveland, CO: Interweave, 1987).
Page 81: Scotch broom stems and flowers, fresh or dried, for yellow dye.
Imagine, something useful from this blight on southern Vancouver Island that crowds out native plants and makes people sneeze.
