Weeping Caragana is not new to the trade, but it is so unique and extremely hardy we felt compelled to offer this to our customers. The first thing you’ll notice are its weeping branches that arch ever so slightly before plunging towards the ground but never reaching it. Golden flowers emerge in spring along with pinnate ferny like leaves that turn yellow in autumn. This is a striking tree for small places and can even handle growing in a pot outdoors! Drought, cold, wind, and poor, even salty soil is no match for this specimen tree! Very drought tolerant once established. Will not tolerate water logged soils. Even in winter this is a standout plant, showing its unique bones of your landscape. Adapted to most soil types except for consistently wet soils. Handles wind, and is drought tolerant once established.
