While in some environments, common brooms (Cytissus scoparius) can re-seed and spread to form dense stands that tend to crowd out native plants and is considered to be an invasive species in California and the Pacific Northwest, hybrid cultivars of this plant are much less aggressive and some do not produce viable seed.
