An appealing Honey Locust tree, Sunburst, (Gleditsia triacanthus 'Sunburst') is a particularly unusual and colourful tree with almost flourescent yellow, dainty fern-type foliage which marks this tree out as something rather special. As the season progresses, this foliage darkens. Well-suited to small gardens in towns and cities, because it copes well with pollution, we recommend this tree.
A small tree with a height of up to 4 metres (13 foot) after 10 years.
Our Honey Locust trees (Gleditsia triacanthus Sunburst) are supplied at a height of between 1.5 and 1.7 metres in a 12 litre container, which means that the tree can be planted any time of the year and with better results than either bare-root or rootballed trees.
Message card included at no additional cost if required. Just add the information required on the card at checkout.

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.
