    An interesting large shrub or small tree with a vigorously upright, weeping habit of growth and attractive yellow flowers in spring, great as a form accent in the garden or landscape; an incredibly tough, hardy and durable plant

    Ornamental Features

    Weeping Peashrub has yellow pea-like flowers hanging below the branches in mid spring. It has green foliage throughout the season. The round pinnately compound leaves turn yellow in fall. The fruit is not ornamentally significant. The smooth olive green bark adds an interesting dimension to the landscape.

    Landscape Attributes

    Weeping Peashrub is a multi-stemmed deciduous shrub with a shapely form and gracefully arching branches. Its relatively fine texture sets it apart from other landscape plants with less refined foliage.

    This is a relatively low maintenance shrub, and should not require much pruning, except when necessary, such as to remove dieback. It has no significant negative characteristics.

    Weeping Peashrub is recommended for the following landscape applications;

    • Accent
    • Vertical Accent
    • General Garden Use

    Planting & Growing

    Weeping Peashrub will grow to be about 15 feet tall at maturity, with a spread of 10 feet. It has a low canopy with a typical clearance of 2 feet from the ground, and is suitable for planting under power lines. It grows at a medium rate, and under ideal conditions can be expected to live for approximately 30 years.

    This shrub does best in full sun to partial shade. It prefers dry to average moisture levels with very well-drained soil, and will often die in standing water. It is considered to be drought-tolerant, and thus makes an ideal choice for xeriscaping or the moisture-conserving landscape. It is not particular as to soil type or pH, and is able to handle environmental salt. It is highly tolerant of urban pollution and will even thrive in inner city environments. This is a selected variety of a species not originally from North America.
