The Weeping Siberian Pea Shrub is one tough little cookie and a godsend for frigid Northern gardens where winters get too cold for a Snow Fountain® Weeping Cherry or a Dwarf Weeping Japanese Maple. Like those better-known weepers, Pea Shrub will make a fine focal point in your entryway garden, courtyard, or patio area without overwhelming the space. In addition, it puts up with icy winters without complaint and is a smart choice for sites with poor soil. As a matter of fact, this resourceful ornamental tree can even “fix” its own nitrogen—meaning that it makes its own food!

The Story

Those poor Pea Shrubs.  Although there are more than 80 species of them in the world, many gardeners find it hard to name even one.  If they can name one, it’s the Siberian.  In its homelands in Siberia, Northern China, and Kazakhstan, Siberian Pea Shrub is appreciated for the workhorse it is—as a soil stabilizer, windbreak, and bee plant, and as a source of cord fiber, blue dye (from the leaves), and food (the “peas” and pods are edible).  This weeping selection adds good looks to that list!

The Details

An extraordinary specimen that will jazz up any dull spot in your garden… bright green compound leaves join forces with bright yellow pea-like flowers in spring. Foliage turns shades of yellow in fall. Weeping habit. Easy to grow!

How to Grow

This plant takes the “Siberian” part of its name seriously.  It’s cold-hardy to Zone 2, which is to say that -45°F is no sweat.  As a matter of fact, it doesn’t just tolerate cold winters—it prefers them.  Bring on the Polar Vortex!  It can also handle hot, dry summers, wind, salt spray, and poor or high pH soils as well.  The only thing that chaps its hide is excess moisture.  This is a grafted tree, so you’ll want to remove suckers from the trunk and base of the tree.
