The Story

Unless you’ve spent some time in Canada, you might not be familiar with Siberian Pea Shrub.  Though the plant is native to Russia and Northern China, it has been embraced most wholeheartedly on Canadian prairielands.  If you ever find yourself in Saskatchewan, you can visit the town of Conquest—self-proclaimed “Caragana” Capital of Canada!  This petite weeping selection was bred at the Morden Research Station in Manitoba.  The Morden, situated in North America’s breadbasket, was established in 1915 to help farmers grow better crops, but they now introduce ornamentals, too.

The Details

A simply unique small tree if we ever saw one. Slender fern-like linear foliage appears in spring amidst bright yellow flowers. Growth habit is weeping with a pendulous branch structure. Stays relatively small and will be welcome in any garden, big or small.

How to Grow

Walker Pea Shrub sulks when planted south of the Mason-Dixon Line, but where winters are frigid, it feels right at home.  It’s a low-demand specimen tree.  Maybe it’s not as flashy as a Weeping Cherry or a Japanese Maple, but it’s easier to keep happy, at least in the Northern states.  Give it well-drained soil and full sun.  Its flowers make a pretty salad garnish, and the pods and “peas” are edible, too.  They’re not four-star fare, but if your toddler discovers them, you won’t have to call Poison Control!
