Walker Weeping Siberian Pea Shrub
Walker Weeping Siberian Pea Shrub is a small tree with a graceful weeping habit and light feathery foliage that is truly one of a kind. Covered in bright yellow flowers in late spring this tree is beautiful as well as beneficial as a nitrogen fixer and will become a welcomed addition to any of the gardens that surround your home. A good choice if you’re looking for something a little different than your neighbors for your entryway or patio and tough enough to perform well in those troublesome areas of your yard.

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.
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!
