Product details

Although originally from moist and even swampy areas the Honey Locust does well in much drier and free draining soils.

Introduced in the mid 1950s it won the Award of Garden Merit in 2002.

It is one of the best yellow foliaged trees on the market.

This medium to large cultivar has the advantage of being thornless.

It has a rounded rather spreading form and its yellow foliage which appears late is retained for most of the sum.

We recommend it as a very good substitute for the more brittle Robinia pseudoacacia Frisia.

Mature height: 7-12m

Mature spread: 4-8m
