Is this a Caragana seedling?

I broadcast Caragana seed into a birch grove that I am converting into a food forest last fall, and now I found this plant coming up. It’s clearly a legume, and has no terminal leaf. Could it be my favorite nitrogen-fixing shrub?

I agree it sure looks like it could be, but since you broadcast seeds in a natural area where there may be other legumes, you won't know till it's bigger.
