One of my favourite plants. Flowers from June to September and has a delicious fragrance.Highly rated by plantsmen and garden writers as it comes into flower after many shrubs have gone over.

Hi David, I agree a lovely plant and a real splash of colour. I read somewhere that it can be very invasive, is that correct ?

I've not seen any evidence that it's invasive Chris, but it is listed as being naturalized in some parts of the UK according to Stace. I have seen it mass planted abroad on roadsides, I'd imagine that if conditions suit it that it could become a nuisance.
Just had to mention that I've seen loads of this in Aberdeenshire particularly on coastal areas. Just wandering on one hot sunny day, I could not work out where the lovely coconut smell was coming from, but it turned out to be the broom, which also gives a wonderful splash of colour to the dunes
... you're unlikely to see loads of Spartium. From the reference to a coconut scent I suspect that what you saw was gorse (Ulex europaeus), which I would expect to be common around coastal Aberdeenshire.
