Pink Acacia Tree (Robinia x margareta 'Pink Cascade')
A relatively rare tree, compared to the false acacia or black locust tree (Robinia pseudoacacia 'Frisia'), the pink acacia tee (Robinia x margareta 'Pink Cascade') is noted for its very numerous and beautiful rich pink coloured flowers, which arrive during June and its dark, pinnate leaves are especially appealing.
Sizing Options For Robinia Pink Cascade
120-180cm: 3-5 Litre pot
180-240cm: 5-12 litre pot.
We give a range of pot sizes because it depends on which wholesaler we can leverage/barter/blackmail a better deal from that dictates which pots we use. The height range is to cover us for a years growth so depending when in the season you buy them determines which end of the height range you are at. The larger and more vigorous Pink Acacia trees are graded out and planted into larger pots. This is no guarantee that the tree will continue to be more vigorous than the Pink Cascade sat in the next isle over feeling inadequate for itself.
You can plant potted Pink Acacia all year round except for when the ground is frozen. Planting at the end of Summer when the soil promotes root growth and earlier establishment so if you are going to pick a time to plant, then that is a good one.
Somewhat slow-growing, expect this tree to attain a height of up to 4m (13ft) after 10 years.

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.
Early Autumn Leaf Fall
Heat stress, being potted, lack of water, being boxed up for a few days etc can cause early Autumn leaf fall. Once planted, normal service will resume next season.
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 TreesClimate Change
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.
Warm and wet conditions from Climate Change have increased aesthetic foliage issues such as Powdery Mildew, Shothole, Rust etc These are not terminal issues and will usually last a season. All trees are inspected before being sent out to ensure they are fundamentally healthy. Planting In The Corner Of A Garden
Air and light is reduced in this location which could promote fungus and bacterial issues. If the corner is of the house and a fence then you also have leeching issues to contend with from cement and wood preservatives. Also when it rains, that area would experience higher water levels so we advise against it.
