Also called the Siberian Peashrub or Caragana, this specimen shrub, with its unique weeping appearance makes for a wonderful accent plant anywhere in your flower bed. Since it has a narrow growing habit, it will fit into almost any space.
In the Spring the Walker Weeping Peashrub flowers in bright yellow pea-like flowers which, against the light green leaves results in a subtle two-toned effect. The light, feathery leaves will eventually turn a beautiful yellow before falling off for the winter. With its cascading branches and unique shape, the Walker Weeping Peashrub is beautiful to look at in both summer and winter.
While it is quite adaptable to soil type and pH and can even handle environmental salt and urban pollution, it cannot handle standing water and should only be planted in well-draining soil. It prefers dry to average moisture conditions making it an ideal candidate for a moisture-conserving landscape.
