Product details

Robinia pseudoacacia known as False Acacia, was brought over from its native America to France in the 1600s and soon naturalized all over Europe. Pretty in flower, its thorny stems and haphazard brittle crown make this an unsuitable garden tree especially as it is prone to suckering up in inappropriate places.

 It looks best when young but as it enters into maturity it becomes a maintenance nightmare! Robinia pseudoacacia thrive on most soils but in recent years it, and its numerous clones, have not done well in the UK and are generally being replaced.

Mature Height: 7-12m
