Honeylocusts make decorative, winter hardy solitary trees within the bean family (Caesalpinaceae) and are native throughout North America and Northeastern Asia. They grow to medium-sized trees with a rather open crown and show some typical, very long, branching, blackish-brown thorns on their stems. They have elegant, medium to dark green feathered leaves and clusters of small, yellowish-green, very sweetly fragrant flowers, which are followed by reddish-brown, flat and large, leathery seed pods in late summer and autumn. Easily cultivated in any rich and very well drained soil in full sun. Keep younger plants in a protected spot during winter or give some extra winter protection (e.g. a thick mulch layer).
Prior to sowing scarify seed (e.g. carefully scratch the seed coat with fine sandpaper) and soak them in luke warm water for some 48h. Sow in any well drained, sandy soil throughout the year. Keep pots in full sun and in a protected spot outside during winter. If sown from summer to autumn seeds will germinate in spring the following year.
All are USDA Climate Zone 7.
