Robinia shrubs

Robinia shrubsAll Robinia shrubs have fine, fern-like foliage which changes colour in autumn. The Pea-shaped flowers vary in colour from cream to purple, and while in bloom the plants are very handsome.

Robinia grow in any soil, flower in May and onwards, and are increased by layers. Height varies, the Rose Acacia (Hispida) reaching ten feet, while the Locust Tree (Pseudo-Acacia) grows to the height of forty feet.
