Hi everyone:)

My Siberian weeping pea shrub is finally starting to get the leaf buds going now so I will be able to take cutting off of it in a couple weeks if anyone would like some let me know. It is a very pretty yellow bloom.

Sure I will be taing the cuttings in another week or 2 when my tree is more awake, it is just now starting to wake up. So will check it in a week and see how it is then.

Thank you!:D I cant wait to see it bloom this year. I just planted it last summer, its a 2-3 year old tree now. So it should bloom nice this year.

RR, aren't they grafted onto some type of upright rootstock so that you get a small tree effect? I am not sure how they grow, probably like a groundcover if you just plant cuttings from the top.
Just a thought.

It grows more like a shrub with multiple branches, but can be pruned into a small tree.
The weeping type are grafted onto a stalk plant, so the cuttings will not come true and will revert back into its natural shape.
They do make a wonderful natural hedge if left unpruned!

well that will be ok the natural shape is nice also its just upright instead of weeping. Its still a very nice shrub. Thank you though I didnt know that they were grafted.
