  • Q:

    Large Yellow Leaved and Deciduous Tree please...

    Dear Team, My large magnificent Robinia pseudoacacia has died and I read in the Hilliers newsletter that I am not alone. I need to fill the gap with something substantial, impressive and yellow, but I am advised, naturally, not to repeat with another Robinia pseudoacacia for fear of the same disease. I am impressed with your Catalpa big. 'Aurea'. Before I finalise the decision however, have you any other suggestions, please? Regards, Geoffrey

      Hello Geoffrey, If you click on the following link it will take you to the few tress we sell that have yellow foliage http://www.crocus.co.uk/plants/_/trees/plcid.7/vid.48/ I'm afraid though the best replacement will be determined by what might have killed your Robinia as some other plants may be susceptible too. I hope this helps. Helen Plant Doctor
