    The 'Royal Horticultural Society Plant Finder' (2004) states that Chamaespartium has been moved to Genista. This is also supported by D. J. Mabberley in 'The Plant Book' (1997). Consequently, Chamaespartium sagittale is now named Genista sagittalis.

    For an older reference, it's also Genista saggitalis in the New RHS Dictionary of Gardening (1992)
