It feeds in July and August on broom, dyer's greenweed (genista tinctoria), persicaria, and other low plants.

He afterwards took the name of Plantagenet (Planta genista) and transmitted it to his princely posterity.
The genista tomentosa yields red petals used in dyeing, and containing much tannic acid.
The only prominent form of vegetation is a peculiar tall broom—genista Etnensis—which here flourishes.
Resting under a solitary broom bush (a kind of genista), he gave vent to his disappointment in a prayer for death.
