I think I we have some siberian pea shrubs growing in Finland. If you are an expert, let me know what you think...

I think I've seen them here as well. But I don't have any experience with the species yet. Your photographs sure do correlate with some of the pictures I've seen though.

Whereabouts in Finland are you?

Hi Joshua, I'm in Oulu.
I think the shrub's flowers were yellow in the spring time too, but I can confirm this next year I guess. The shrub seems to be a popular edition here in the kerrostalon piha alueet (apartment block communal garden areas).

If you ever need seeds, don't hesitate to ask.
