Fast growing leguminous tree thrives on the poorest of soils. Attractive all year with its abundant showy white bloom, lacy bright green foliage, crisp golden fall color and interesting brown pods dangling in the breeze all winter. This soil-improving tree has remarkably hard rot resistant wood that makes great fence posts or high BTU firewood. Provides an excellent nectar source for bees and casts a light shade allowing for growth of plants below. Don't plant near tilled areas as damaged roots will sprout suckers. We have planted this tree extensively to stabilize and reclaim our slide prone eroding slope and in seven years have trees twenty feet tall where there had been only sloughing bare subsoil before. Zones 4-9. Our Black Locust is grown in 3x9" pots.
