Cytisus identification
My daughters sent me the most beautiful scented bouquet for mother's day and amongst the flowers was what I think was a white cytisus with a purple base to each flower. The smell was amazing but I am having trouble identifying it. Your help would be appreciated.



Be good if you could post a photo of the plant in question - I don't know any Cytisus which has white flowers, with or without a purple blotch - the palest is a very definite yellowish cream. Hold on, done a bit more research, lol. There is one with white flowers with purple "wings", whatever that means, called C. 'Minstead' but fragrance is not mentioned, which usually means it isn't fragrant, though not necessarily.
