Spectacular , butter-yellow foliage turning yellow-green in summer, turning to amber in autumn, with clusters of scented white flowers in late-spring and early summer mark out the False Acacia Frisia (Robinia pseudoacacia 'Frisia') as one of the most attractive and popular trees. This fairly columnar tree makes an excellent choice of tree for a sunny, surburban garden. Its pea-like pods were likened by some to resemble locusts, hence the name Black Locust tree. It is best to shelter it from strong winds and avoid disturbing the roots, since the tree is prone to suckering.
A medium sized tree, expect a height of up to 6 metres (20 ft) after 10 years.
This tree is supplied at a height of between 1.5 to 2.4 metres in a 10-15 litre container for year round planting and better results than from bare-root or rootballed stock.

Ornamental Tree Topping
All ornamental trees (not vines) are topped at 1.3 metres to encourage a natural ornamental tree shape with obvious exceptions e.g. patio sizes.This means that your tree was pruned during the growing process and then allowed to grow to the size it is now supplied at.

Ornamental Tree Roots In The Shade e.g. Behind A Fence
It is more important that that foliage (posh term for leaves) receives the sunlight than the roots. So if the canopy of your ornamental tree can sunbathe but the bottom of your tree thinks there has been a nuclear winter then that is ok. You might want to ensure you have good drainage as water and no sun is the start of algae and other such issues.
Do I Need To Stake My Ornamental Tree?
9 out of 10 times the answer will be no, especially if under 200cm tall. However our article on Tree Staking should help guide you.
UK Grown Ornamental Trees
All our trees are banned from overseas travel so that we can state they are all UK grown. We have removed Internet access from the nursery so they cannot book any flights.
