Meet . . . Caragana!

· Posted in

Peashrub is the common name for the genus Caragana; tough, adaptable shrubs for home, commercial, or rural landscapes. They range in size from the very large (12-15’ tall) Siberian peashrub (Caragana arborescens), to the dwarf (3’x3’) pygmy peashrub (Caragana pygmaea). All prefer full sun, are quite drought tolerant, and feature yellow flowers in May. Leaf color and texture vary per species and variety.

I believe that the peashrub in my photographs is C. arborescens ‘Lorbergii’, purchased as lace-leaf peashrub. There are several planted along my property line and they create a gauzy, light green screen---just right for privacy but not wall like. And they are still blooming!

The first photo (above) was taken May 11th. This photo is from yesterday, May 31. The foliage now predominates, but if you look closely, you can see some yellow flowers.
