Prune

Hi, I've got this plant but I would like to cut it back but I have no idea what it is. Could anyone help please?

    It is a coloured form of Broom. Cytisus scoparius.

    Prune after flowers fade  gently. Do not cut into old wood.

    It's a broom, not sure which one (google 'red broom' to see if you recognise one.)  Prune after flowering by cutting back to young growth but don't cut into old wood.

    A trowel in the hand is worth a thousand lost under a bush.
