Siberian peashrub is an upright, oval deciduous shrub with sparse, thorned branches native to eastern Asia. Fine-textured leaves are light green in spring and summer and briefly yellow-green in fall. Yellow flowers appear in spring followed by tan seed pods in autumn.
Siberian peashrub tolerates poor, dry soils in full sun and is an excellent plant for hedges and screening in harsh conditions. (Learn2Grow.com)
