Why the Weeping Siberian Pea Shrub?

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!

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!

How to use in the landscape?

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!

Why Bower & Branch?

At Bower & Branch, it’s our job to know and grow trees… especially big trees.

- Trusted, Experienced Growers

- Trusted, Knowledgeable Expertise

- Trusted Brand of Quality Trees Across the United States

We do the hard part. Our trees and plants are grown and cared for by only the best, local growers for years before they find their forever home in your landscape. Bower & Branch is known for having hard-to-find, substantial sizes and selection. The quality of our trees and plants are consistent in health and vigor—always ready for immediate impact in your garden and instant curb appeal. We never rush our trees to reach a ‘grade size.’ Our trees are grown for quality height, vigor, health and age.

We believe in empowering homeowners with the truth about strong, healthy and structurally sound plants that are grown to perform in the ground after they leave the nursery for home delivery, always fresh inventory from the grower.

How To Plant

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.

How To Water

Weeping Siberian Pea Shrub will appreciate regular water during its first few years in the ground and irrigation during long dry spells after it’s established.

How To Fertilize

Incorporate Elements Starter Plant food granular form into the soil when planting. If planting in spring or summer, start fertilizing late fall using Elements Starter Plant food granular form on an annual basis each late fall. Continue this for the first three years to get your plant well established.

How To Prune

This is a grafted tree, so if they appear, you’ll want to remove suckers from the trunk and base of the tree.

How Does Shipping Work?

Bower & Branch Trees, the real BIG trees, don’t fit in a box! Our large trees require expert delivery and care, that means our large trees are shipped on Bower & Branch trucks. We are the only ones who know how to ship our big and bigger trees and plants with tender loving care.

We deliver your trees and plants directly to your driveway or curbside! Ask Bower & Branch about planting services and rates – we'd be happy to assist in installation.

*Big trees, Size XL (A) and bigger, will take approximately 2 to 4 weeks days to be delivered. - Sizes large (AA) and smaller (Treelings) will be shipped directly to your home by a local common carrier in a plant-safe box.

How Does Sizing Work?

The size of our trees have nothing to do with the container size like you may find elsewhere–big doesn't mean just height - it’s also vigor, age, and overall health.. Other online retailers are going to tell you that a plant is a seven gallon, that means nothing to your tree or plant (or you.)

Our trees for sale online are graded on large, x-large, and even bigger sizes. This is because our trees are sized by their age—the higher the letter, the more mature the tree. The age determines the trees’ overall height, size of the trunk and the overall branch density.

All of these characteristics are what you should be looking for when choosing a tree for immediate impact and instant curb appeal. Our extra-large tree and plant sizes are sure to wow you and your neighbors!
