I love the little hairs on these pods.
Originally, I was led to believe that the little yellow flowers on these bushes were Heather, but in looking into it more deeply, it seems that information was incorrect.
I found this helpful PDF that discusses plants in the Willamette Valley (which isn’t too far away) and came to the conclusion that this plant is in fact Scotch Broom, or Cytisus scoparius.
So, yay! I learned something new today.
