Planted in our Heritage Berm as a specimen tree.  It blooms in the spring with 1 inch flowers on strongly weeping stems as the leaves are developing.  It has proven to be easy to grow and tolerates poor soils, drought, and sweeping winds.

It’s real name is Caragana arborescens ‘Walker’.  It is a deciduous shrub, grows about 5-6 ft tall and likes full sun.  Gentle Gardens also planted one in a clients garden and it has grown faster than ours…with less sun. Go Figure.

The rabbits would love it, however; so I put tall fencing around it and staked it down so they can’t get under…about this time of year they are getting desperate…Old winter needs to release its grip pretty soon…next week begins Day Light Saving and of course St. Patty’s Day.
