How tall does it grow? we have the large Robinia Frisia, which might need replacing,... this looks lovely in your garden with all the different shades, worth every penny Paul.

Lovely tree,Paul..and the colour too..another I will never be able to have :o(...will you put your smiley face back on please? ...seen enough rain ! Lol.

Hi Bloomer - why not be able to have ?????

4 May, 2012

 

That's beautiful, Paul! :))
(there's nothing like a bit of retail therapy, especially when the weather's not good!)

Have you seen the size of my garden Paul ? only shallow borders too..so a tree would look totally out of place...I have a mini forest behind the fence,in the wildlife bit (not our property) so I have to make do with that,and just pretend it's ours :o)...

4 May, 2012

 

Thank you Karen and yes certainly true :))))) !!

We have a small garden bloomer and lots of trees - growing this to about 2 ft wide and 4 ft high keeping pruning :)))

4 May, 2012

 

Your garden looks as big as a field,compared to mine,Paul..
but with being a 'wrinkley',it's enough for me..Lol...now if I was your age,young whippersnapper, ..it would have been a totally different plan.:o))) Lol.

I'm pushing on too now Bloomer lol - :D neighbour has a big garden but hates doing it - grrrrrr

4 May, 2012

 

Ooooh, that's gorgeous Paul, it looks like a bonsai. I hope it flowers for you, but it's beautiful without flowers! I once tried a Robinia here, the big pink flowering one, but the wind totally destroyed it and it just died. I love them.

Lovely trees,Rhobinias.Unfortunately we lost us a few years ago......there was a disease attacking them.Would love to try again.

4 May, 2012

Thanks ML - shame about that :(
