Robinia pseudoacacia
Black Locust

The fruits of Black Locust can be subtlely seen in Winter, dehiscing and spreading the small seeds that quickly germinate the following season and, in combination with root suckering, forming colonies and pure stands of this tree in its native habitat. This tree can be easily viewed along roadway embankments when it is in flower in early June, or when the strong breezes turn its leaflets over in Summer, exposing a lighter shade of color underneath.
