Description

A lovely ornamental tree, Gleditsia triacanthos 'Ruby Lace' has ruby-red, fine pinnate (feather-like), young leaves which gradually darken to an attractive bronze-green as they age. The brightly coloured young leaves are eye-catching and contrast well with the older, darker foliage.

Gleditsia triacanthos 'Ruby Lace' is a hardy and elegant garden tree!
