5ft Golden false acacia | Bare Root | Robinia pseudoacacia Frisia
Robinia pseudoacacia 'Frisia' (False Acacia Frisia) - 9L Pot

This beautiful, bushy, medium sized tree with pinnate leaves which are golden-yellow when young is a favourite of ours. The fresh, lime green leaves burst into life as one of the most invigorating signs of spring and turn a greenish-yellow later, with the change to orange-yellow coming later in the autumn.

This tree provides stunning interest all year long with racemes of fragrant, showy white flowers which cascade from the branches attracting many pollinating insects and people alike. This is a perfect feature tree for your garden and will grow in most positions and tolerates most soils well with little care and attention needed.

Caring and Maintenance

Water young trees regularly until roots are well established. Trim annually from mid to late summer. Apply some fertilizer in spring in order to promote healthy growth and a good crop. Optionally, mulch in spring. Check tree ties regularly and loosen any if necessary to avoid rubbing of the stems.

Planting

  • Planting Distance: 8m

Suited to almost all, well-drained and moderately fertile soils with pH between 6.5 and 7.5 in an exposed or sheltered location in full sun.
Before planting your tree, clean up all wandering weeds and keep a clean ring around the tree base. Water well during the first year until well established.

Autumn is the best season for planting trees, as the soil moisture and heat allow easier and faster root establishment and regeneration of damaged root systems.

This is an example of our polypot - note the fruit/ornamental trees we stock will vary in appearance according to species and season.
