Golden False Acacia | Robinia pseudoacacia 'Frisia'

Elegant clusters of fragrant white flowers

The Highlights

    • Bright pinnate foliage, with clear yellow leaves in spring, turning lime green throughout the summer and golden yellow in autumn
    • Racemes of white fragrant flowers hang elegantly from the branches in May and June
    • The common name of False Acacia comes from these beautiful flowers which resemble those of a true acacia
    • The flowers are followed by dark brown seeds that adorn the branches once the autumn leaf colour has fallen
    • This False Acacia is a stunning upright, medium-sized ornamental tree that will grow to 15x8m
    • This tree will grow in most positions where exposure to the wind is avoided
    • Our potted trees are supplied in EcoPots™. Eco pots use 70% less plastic and are fully recyclable, unlike normal single-use pots. They flex and so produce less root spiralling and travel better in the post.MORE
    • Our trees are usually between 18 and 36 months old at the time of dispatch.
    • Our trees are professionally pruned before dispatching. This formative pruning can involve cutting the main leader if the expert tree growers decide this will produce a better-shaped tree. This can stop the tree from becoming "leggy", and promote stronger, bushier growth.MORE
