Caragana Arborescens Siberian Peatree — 8 Comments

  1. Alistair, your rhododendron is very beautiful I think this is Tigerstedtii variety.
    About nice siberian Pea tree I suppose it’s from Russian Siberia, Altay or Hakasia or Mongolia region. I’ve read that Caragana pygmaea (up to 1,5 m) it blooms all summer and gives an annual abundant fruiting. Very undemanding plant, feels good on dry sandy soils.

  2. Hello Alistair, it sounds as though you’re really taken with your dwarf Pea tree! I ove the picture of your Clematis Montana, ours no longer has a tree to climb up (having taken it out) so I will need to move it to another spot. Good luck on the ID for the Rhododendron, if it’s popular, you might spot it at a Garden Centre and so learn the name from there.

  3. Hi Alistair, I have to say I know absolutely nothing about your “pea tree”, but as your soil must tend to acid and you are not short of water I would expect rhododendrons to do quite well. Do you get the vanilla scent with your clematis?

    • Hi Rick, yes I am pleasantly surprised with the Rhododendrons. Myra could detect the fragrance in the clematis
      Last August I bought a few plug plants of the candelabra type primulas and I can see why you are so taken with them
      great at this time of year when there isn’t quite so much in bloom, well, not in our garden.

    • Donna, your my favourite blogger, don’t tell the rest though. My post today explains why I am not so very active in the community these days. I will always drop by your place from time to time. Alistair
