enano -
Mi duda es la siguiente:en un libro que tengo que se llama "Las plantas medicinales en el jardin" de editorial Susaeta la especie Sarothamnus scoparius la define con el nombre comun de "retama negra" o "retama de escobas".Es correcta esa definicion ?,ya que ustedes la ponen como sinonimo de la especie Cytisus scoparius y no me coinciden sus fotos con las del libro ...

Cytisus scoparius
June 1, 2003 (Fraser River Vancouver BC)
Pretty flowers, but an official nuisance weed in our area, naturalized throughout the Lower Mainland and on Vancouver Island BC. It hogs space in sunny areas, and seems especially fond of poor sandy soils near beaches and river edges.
