Its flexibility, an indication of its strength, is the feature that is recognized in rituals that enhances courage for spiritual journeys or combat with malevolent spirits. The spirit within Cytisus is invoked to address spiritual pain often associated with broken hearts. It is gathered only when in bloom because the bees that work it then imbue it with the spirit of abundance. This link to abundance makes it a favored choice for wedding bouquets.
