Hi,

Annybody has experience with growing siberian pea shrub (Caragana aborescens) in hot climates? I would like to grow it in central portugal. The summers are hot and dry up to 35°C and the winters are wet and mild. They will get some irrigation in summer because we planted them as nurse trees.

Thanks

Siberian Pea/ Caragana prefer cold winters.  If you are looking for a nitrogen fixer you might want to go with a different variety of plant.
