A shrubby version of the classic False Acacia, Robinia pseudoacacia ‘Umbraculifera’ is the ideal alternative for a smaller space. Naturally a multi-stemmed shrub, it can also be trained to grow as a small tree which makes a stately presence in a garden without getting too big for its boots. Forming a dense, rounded crown, it has a much more formal and structurally neat and rounded appearance than the original tree. Cloaked in soft green leaves throughout the summer months, whether you grow it as a shrub or a tree it will create shade, shelter from winds and act as an effective screen. The spring flowers can be quite insignificant to look at, but they’re great for pollinators. Height: 6m (20’). Spread: 6m (20’).
Plant height and spread is seasonal therefore we list by pot size rather than a defined plant size. The height and spread of the plant delivered will vary depending on the season, meaning arrival images are an indication only.
