Common Caragana is a fast growing shrub that's known for its exceptional hardiness and drought tolerance.
Although it's most commonly planted in shelterbelts, Caragana is also an excellent hedge or feature shrub.
In some areas, this species can be difficult to contain once planted. That said, it is also a very important hardy species that can get shelterbelts established in the harshest parts of our prairies. Use the right plant in the right place.
