Gleditsia Triacanthos Sunburst Trees - Large Standards - Delivered by Mail Order from the Nursery with a 1 Year Guarantee

Gleditsia Triacanthos Sunburst is a variety of Honey Locust. It is suitable for most gardens and will grow on pretty much any soil.
Gleditsia Triacanthos Sunburst trees can reach a height of about 12 metres.

How Standard Trees are Measured:
This tree transplants badly when it gets large, so these plants are slightly too small to be graded as standards and are delivered when they are about 2m tall.

General description of Gleditsia Triacanthos Sunburst trees:
This Honey Locust has glorious golden-yellow leaf fronds, made up of rows of little leaflets, that seem to sniff the breeze as they sway about. It is a great garden tree, with a canopy spread of only 4-5 metres and it will grow well in the middle of a lawn with grass growing right up to its trunk. This tree is thornless, unlike wild varieties. The tiny flowers aren't really visible, but they have a good sweet scent that carries well. In a hot, sunny summer, you should get some seeds, which are lovely long bean-like pods.

History & uses of Sunburst Honey Locust :
These trees are found in the wild in America and many parts of Asia. This Sunburst variety, also listed as "Inermis Aurea" was bred in the 1950's, although Honey Locusts have been widely planted in Britain since the start of the 1700's.
The pulp and seeds inside the ripe seed-pods are sweet and can be eaten, usually cooked.
