Thiessen Saskatoon is a deciduous shrub that produces delicious edible fruit. They are one of the most productive saskatoons. Their fruit is great in pies, preserves or eating fresh.

Thiessen Saskatoon is most popular with u-pick operations. But it is not the best choice for berry farming because it is too tall for most mechanical harvesting equipment.

Pygmy Caragana is a shrub that is related to Common Caragana and has a compact size that is suitable for yards with limited space. Its size is perfect for landscaping and decorative hedges, and requires little maintenance. This nitrogen fixer has fine-textured foliage and small yellow flowers. Much like Common Caragana, it is hardy and drought tolerant.
