Honey Locust (Gleditsia triacanthos)

Fast-growing and long-lived, Gleditsia triacanthos (Honey Locust) is a large, thorny, deciduous tree of a graceful habit with a spreading rounded crown. The bright green feathery foliage is pinnately compound with paired, oblong, glossy leaflets that turn brilliant yellow in fall. The light shade it casts makes underplanting easy. Inconspicuous greenish flowers appear in late spring to early summer. Rich in nectar, they attract bees and butterflies. They are followed by long, twisted, reddish brown seed pods to 18 in. long (45 cm), which persist well into winter. Livestock and mammals consume the honeylike, sweet pulp of the pods. Trunk and branches have stout, solitary or three-branched thorns, 3 in. long (7 cm), that are extremely vicious and not suitable for a domestic landscape. Tolerant of wind, heat, drought and salt, Honey Locust is popular for hedges.
