Gorse/Furze
Ulex europaeus

Gorse, also known as furze or whin, is common in Ryedale, growing along woodland rides and on scrubland, commons and similar places. It can be found in flower in almost any month, but the main season is spring, when whole banks can turn yellow and the scent is also noticeable. The flowers have the "butterfly" form common to the Peaflower family. The vicious spines deter animals from browsing the bushes.
