Robinia Hispida (Rose Acacia)
A lovely small tree with delicate Wisteria-like foliage, and drooping clusters of rose-pink fragrant flowers. Dark red-brown seed pods follow the pea-shaped blooms in late Summer; and these, along with the stems, are covered in tiny soft hairs. This tree requires a sheltered position as its branches can be brittle; it is well suited to growing against a sunny wall, and here on the nursery we grow it as a fan-trained shrub.
Ultimate height 2.5m (8ft), Spread 3m (10ft).
Robinia pseudoacacia Umbraculifera (Mop-head Acacia)
Robinia pseudoacacia Umbraculifera is a top-worked, mop-headed form of False Acacia which forms a round and compact shape at maturity; unlike the common False Acacia it does not have thorns, and does not produce any flower. It is late to leaf in the Spring, but will keep its foliage long into the Autumn. The Mop-head Acacia will tolerate most soil conditions, providing they are well drained. Older branches can be brittle, so a semi-sheltered site is recommended.
Ultimate height 5m (16ft), Spread 4 m (13ft).
