Neutral darylmitchell On Oct 25, 2005, darylmitchell from Saskatoon, SK (Zone 3a) wrote:

These are popular accent plants in this area. Greenhouses often sell `Walker' weeping caragana grafted onto the trunk of an upright caragana, such as 'Sutherland'. The resulting small tree has a vertical trunk that then sharply weeps back to ground level. They provide an interesting shape in the garden, and especially stand out in the winter after the leaves have fallen. I have only seen them as single specimens.
