Gorse is best known for its associations with the sun, its bright yellow flowers a sign of vibrancy and energy. It is an intelligent light seeker, the seeds will fling as far as possible from their parents to establish themselves independently, in order to maximise their exposure to the sun. It thrives in hostile growing conditions where many other species struggle, and is often used for land reclamation, where it nitrogen-fixing qualities help other plants to become established. Gorse, or Furze as it is known in parts of the UK, was a traditional May Day gift between young lovers in the South West. Carrying a sprig of gorse is said to attract gold, provide protection or lift the spirits of the downhearted. In Wales, hedges of gorse were thought to protect the home against evil and dark fairies, who couldn’t penetrate the hedge.
