Robinia hispida--Rose Acacia, Bristly Locust

List of files and visuals associated with this text.

Rose acacia is beautiful in bloom but is a potential weed. Plant in a sunny location with dry soil. Suckering can lead to a plant much larger than desired. Rose acacia is 3 to 6 feet tall and spreads 3 to 10 feet. The growth rate is rapid and frequent pruning is needed. The pink flowers are borne in loose, hanging racemes in early summer.

One cultivar is listed: 'macrophylla'--nearly free from bristles, flowers larger.
