Siberian Pea Shrub?

There was a mysterious plant that decided it wanted to grow in the very center of my mom's (huge and empty but for a shed) backyard some-odd years ago. Not many plants can grow out there, once upon a time half the town I grew up in was a filbert orchard, then it was taken out and the soil was ruined. Growing up I wanted a garden but it was a raised bed because nothing can grow healthy out there. We hadn't identified it for a long time, looked like a tree sprout or something. My aunt Faye, who has a green-thumb like no one I know, wasn't sure either, she said she was surprised that it was growing out there so it is a pretty hardy plant. She had theories but it was kind of a wait and see type thing.
Well this aspiring tree hung in there for years, and eventually matured. It grew and grew, the most I'd do is respectfully trim the lowest branches, as I noticed our cat liked the shade but there were thorn-like things on the lower part so it wasn't too close, so I kept the lowest parts trimmed down and left yhe rest. Our yard is all sun, all the time, and we have trees and brambles and bushes all around our property, but not in our yard. Aunt Faye said that she didn't think it was native to our state, so we just decided to maintain it if necessary and thank it for offering it's shade and home for the critters that desperately needed it, like the songbirds and other critters that live by us.
Today, that little tree is roughly about 14' at the tallest point! Well curiosity got the best of me and I had to know. Digging around online we finally discoveredcame to the conclusion that it is actually a Siberian Peashrub, strangely. Which brings me to ask, is there any particular folklore or magickal properties that I could possibly use or practise with? I'm 99% sure that that is what it is.
Anything is helpful, thoughts answers and questions are requested and encouraged, please! Blessed be, my friends!

I’ve never heard of a Siberian pea shrub, but my first instinct would be to look into Russian folklore (because it’s from Siberia right?) and see if there’s anything there.
