- Subkingdom: Viridaeplantae Cavalier-Smith, 1981 - Green Plants
- Kingdom: Plantae Haeckel, 1866 - Plants
The Tribe Cytiseae is further organized into finer groupings including:
- Genus (15): Adenocarpus · Argyrocytisus · Argyrolobium · Cytisophyllum · Echinospartum · Erinacea · Genista · Gonocytisus · Laburnocytisus · Laburnum · Lupinus · Petteria · Retama · Spartium · Ulex
- Species: ZipcodeZoo has pages for 2,577 species, subspecies, varieties, forms, and cultivars in the Tribe Cytiseae.
Adenocarpus is a genus of flowering plants in the legume family, Fabaceae. It belongs to the sub family Faboideae. [more]
Argyrocytisus is a genus of flowering plants in the legume family, Fabaceae. It belongs to the sub family Faboideae. [more]
Argyrolobium is a genus of flowering plants in the legume family, Fabaceae. It belongs to the sub family Faboideae. [more]
Genista () is a genus of legumes which includes many species of broom. Many of these brooms are notorious as noxious weeds. Many of the species have flowers that open explosively when alighted on by an insect, the style flying through the upper seam of the keel and striking the underside of the insect, followed by a shower of pollen that coats the insect.

+Laburnocytisus 'Adamii' (also known as Adam's laburnum or broom laburnum) is a horticultural curiosity; a small tree which is a graft-chimaera between two species, a laburnum, Laburnum anagyroides, and a broom, (syn. Cytisus purpureus), which bears some shoots typical of the one species, some of the other, and some which are a peculiar mixture of both "parents". [more]
Lupinus, commonly known as Lupins or lupines (North America), is a genus in the legume family (Fabaceae). The genus comprises about 280 species (Hughes), with major centers of diversity in South and western North America (Subgen. Platycarpos (Wats.) Kurl.), and the Andes and secondary centers in the Mediterranean region and Africa (Subgen. Lupinus). [more]
Petteria is a genus of flowering plants in the legume family, Fabaceae. It belongs to the sub family Faboideae. [more]
Retama is a genus of flowering bushes in the legume family, Fabaceae. It belongs to the broom tribe, Genisteae. Retama broom bushes are found natively in North Africa, the Levant and some parts of southern Europe. The GRIN database lists three species: Retama raetam, Retama monosperma, and Retama sphaerocarpa. The first two of those have white flowers, while the third has yellow flowers. It remains an open question in taxonomy whether the members of the Retama genus should be incorporated into the Genista genus; see Genisteae. [more]
Spartium junceum (syn. Genista juncea), known as Spanish Broom or Weaver's Broom, is a perennial, leguminous shrub native to the Mediterranean region in southern Europe, southwest Asia and northwest Africa, where it is found in sunny sites, usually on dry, sandy soils. It is the sole species in the genus Spartium, but is closely related to the other brooms in the genera Cytisus and Genista. [more]
Gorse, furze, furse or whin (Ulex) is a genus of about 20 plant species of thorny evergreen shrubs in the subfamily Faboideae of the pea family Fabaceae, native to western Europe and northwest Africa, with the majority of species in Iberia. [more]
At least 92 species and subspecies belong to the Genus Ulex.
