Hi all,

I'm beginning to assemble an assortment of trees for livestock food and I'm trying to determine if Siberian peashrub is worth a shot here in zone 8. Anyone in my area growing this? I've got honeylocust, persimmon, mulberry and hazelnut so far and I'm looking for more things to add.

Any help you can offer would be awesome, and I'm open to suggestions for other things to try here as well.

Thanks!

Steve

Pigeon pea would be great for your area. 45days to flowering, indeterminate growth, http://www.petcherseeds.com/georgia-two-pigeon-pea/

Hmm, haven't heard much about pigeon pea.

Any idea if grazing it limits its ability to grow back the next year? I'm interested in perennials only.
