Robinia pseudoacacia Casque Rouge
This delightful cultivar of False Acacia makes a particularly fine garden, verge or parkland tree as its profuse flowers emerge in June after the Cherries, Crab Apples and Thorns have all finished.
This tree of medium height and broadly rounded habit, it is greatly prized for its showy and highly ornamental lilac-pink flowers that are richly appreciated by all those who notice.
It thrives on any soil, and tolerates urban pollution, but is not good in windy, exposed locations due to its rather brittle branches.
Mature height: 10-15m
Grow in part/full shade. Looks great as a riverside planting.
