ROBINIA (FALSE ACACIA)

(deciduous leaf-losing)

These false acacias grow well in dry soils, and established trees have a most attractive lacey bark. Plant from October to February.

Rohinia kelseyi, 10 ft., bears rosy-pink flowers in June, and is more suitable for a small garden than R. pseudoacacia.

R. pseudoacacia (false acacia or locust tree), 60 ft., attractive leaves split into leaflets; bears trails of white pea-flowers in June when established. This is an excellent tree for growing in town gardens.
