L. Genista versicolor; Cytisus (various colors or changing colors) (previously named Genista baetica or Genista andalusa), Eng. yellow broom. The yellow to brownish flowers of this shrub bloom in June, July or August. It only grows in eastern Andalusia, in the mountain ranges of the provinces of Almeria and Granada. 

In Nola’s recipe for thick mutton stew he calls for egg yolks and saffron to color it like yellow broom. See Almendras Amaraga, Chivo, Compludo, Ginestada and Iniesta.
