TWISTY BABY™ BLACK LOCUST

Robinia pseudoacacia 'Lace Lady'
PP9771 Plant propagation prohibited

Buy Twisty Baby™ Black Locust online. Locust is a real eye-catcher, with its highly contorted habit and smaller size, it is an excellent choice for containers or smaller gardens where it can be prominently featured as a specimen. In a open area it can reach 15' to 20' in height, but it can be maintained much smaller in a large container. The Twisty Baby™ Black Locust branches are charcoal gray in color and contrast nicely with the grass green leaflets they bear. As a bonus early spring white panicle type flowers highly resemble Wisteria.

Mature Height:

15-20 Feet

Mature Spread:

10-15 Feet

Hardiness Zone:

3-9
