Buy Gleditsia triacanthos f. inermis 'Sunburst' honey locust: Magnificent medium sized thornless tree

This tree is deciduous so it will lose all its leaves in autumn, then fresh new foliage appears again each spring.

  • Position: full sun
  • Soil: all well-drained soils
  • Rate of growth: fast-growing
  • Flowering period: March to May
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    A fast-growing tree with golden yellow, spring foliage which darkens to pale green but then turns butter yellow in autumn. It is a thornless variety that is tough enough to be plant in city gardens as it is quite tolerant of pollution. A fast-growing tree that is one of the most effective golden trees.

  • Garden care: Requires minimal pruning. Remove any broken, diseased or crossing branches in late autumn or winter. When planting incorporate lots of well-rotted garden compost in the planting hole and stake firmly.

I would buy this product again


It's actually planted in the middle of a road island which is in the front of our house. We live in a a cul de sac. I had to obtain approval from Surrey County Council to plant the tree. They gave me a short list to select from and the Gledetsia seemed to most appropriate.

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 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
