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.

Throughout this site, the following are used as guidelines for watering established plants:

water_drops_icon  These truly xeric plants can live with our 12 inches of natural annual precipitation and only need a winter watering during a multi-year drought, but they will thrive with a monthly watering. Overwatering will kill some of these.
water_drops_iconwater_drops_icon  These plants are adapted to intermittent deep watering with soil drying to a depth of a few inches between waterings. Watering frequency may be every couple of weeks during the active growing season and maybe only one winter watering for optimal care.
water_drops_iconwater_drops_iconwater_drops_icon  These plants need regular watering somewhat like a bluegrass lawn so that they never dry to depth in the root system during the active growing season, and need occasional winter watering to prevent root dessication and resultant plant death.

About sizes of our plants:

Sizes indicated with a # are roughly the equivalent in gallonage; so a #2 is about a 2 gallon pot size; b&b stands for balled and burlapped.
