Information Only - A popular garden tree, first raised at a nursery in Holland in 1935, Robinia pseudoacacia 'Frisia' has leaves that are rich golden yellow from late spring until autumn. These colourful leaves give lots of summer colour and are a superb foil for other plants with purple foliage or against dark backgrounds.

Often seen in gardens around the U.K., Robinia pseudoacacia 'Frisia' thrives in a warm sheltered spot with plenty of sun.

The closest tree we have to this Robinia in appearance is the attractive but slower growing, golden-leaved Gleditsia triacanthos 'Sunburst'.
