Gleditsia Triacanthos Sunburst aka Golden Honeylocust Options
125-150cm: 7-9 L pot/container
150-200cm: 9-15L Pot.
An appealing Honey Locust tree, Sunburst, (Gleditsia triacanthus 'Sunburst') is a particularly unusual and colourful tree. The tree may have strong female traits due to initial foliage colour being yellow but then changes its mind in Summer by going green and another mind change in Autumn when it is back to yellow. The noise you hear in Autumn is not the wind blowing through the trees, it is the male trees sighing in despair.
If you are the forgetful type that cannot remember why you were in the garden with a watering can in your hand then don't worry because the Gleditsia Triacanthos Sunburst is drought tolerant. However if you find yourself in the same situation with only your slippers and sunglasses on then you either don't feel the cold, are very proud of your physique or have worse memory problems that you thought. Speaking of memory problems................................
Well-suited to small gardens in towns and cities, because it copes well with pollution, we recommend this tree.
A medium sized tree with a height of up to 6 metres after 10 years. Could go on to grow double that after the 10 year juvenile period.
Our Honey Locust trees (Gleditsia triacanthus Sunburst) are supplied at a height of between 1.25 and 2.0 metres in a 7-15 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 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.
