Robinia hispida (Rose Acacia) is a rarely offered, deciduous shrub or small tree that has pinnate leaves and begins to flower at a young age. The stems are covered with soft bristles.
From May-June, racemes of beautiful pink, pea-like flowers are in bloom. The clusters of flowers attract the butterflies and bees due to them giving off a sweet fragrance. In warm summers, purple seedpods appear which are quite interesting looking, adding an ornamental value to the shrub. We have excellent quality, 15-20cm tall starter plants on offer.
