Introducing Caragana pygmaea Dwarf Peashrub, also known as Pygmy Peashrub. This flowering plant is native to various regions and is highly tolerant of dry alkaline soils. With its ornamental appeal, it thrives in a continental climate with hot summers and cold winters.

Caragana pygmaea forms a symbiotic relationship with certain soil bacteria, resulting in the formation of nodules on its roots that fix atmospheric nitrogen. This nitrogen is not only utilized by the plant itself but also benefits nearby plants.

This deciduous shrub can reach a height of 1.2 meters and is hardy up to zone 3. It blooms in May, attracting bees for pollination, and its seeds ripen in September. Notably, Caragana pygmaea is known for attracting wildlife.

It prefers light and medium soils, including sandy and loamy soils, as well as well-drained soil. The plant's adaptability extends to nutritionally poor soil, and it can tolerate dry or moist conditions, including drought. While it can withstand strong winds, it is not suitable for maritime exposure.

With its preference for full sun and sandy or well-drained soil, Caragana pygmaea thrives in continental climates but may struggle in mild maritime areas. It is also resistant to honey fungus. For more detailed information, visit http://plants.usda.gov.
