This fast-growing, golden-yellow selection of Honeylocust makes a bright specimen for the home landscape. The plant has an open, airy habit and creates a light shade on the ground below, perfect for many spring bulbs and perennials. Its colorful foliage fades to pale green by midsummer, and then turns yellow again in fall. Sunburst® is thornless and fruitless (meaning no litter of seed pods) and received an Award of Garden Merit from the Royal Horticultural Society. 'Suncole'
Gleditsia is a genus of 14 species of trees, found mostly in Asia, but several are native to eastern North America. They are often planted along streets for their attractively divided leaves and graceful form.

HOW PLANTS ARE SHIPPED
The size of the plants we ship has been selected to reduce the shock of transplanting. For some, this means a large, bareroot crown. Others cannot travel bareroot or transplant best if grown in containers. We ship these perennials and annuals in 1 pint pots, except as noted. We must point out that many perennials will not bloom the first year after planting, but will the following year, amply rewarding your patience. We ship bulbs as dormant, bare bulbs, sometimes with some wood shavings or moss. Shrubs, Roses, vines, and other woody plants may be shipped bareroot or in pots. The size of the pot is noted in the quick facts for each item.

My order was received quickly. I was so impressed with the size of the tree and how it was packaged. The bark was thin and I say that because most of the trees at the garden center are too heavy for me to handle. They also are more expensive. I love my tree and will give it a great start. Thank you for making this possible.
Latin Name Pronunciation: gleh-dit'see-uh
An easy-care tree with a graceful habit, the Honeylocust is popular for planting in lawns and along streets, where its fine-textured, fern-like leaves create light shade and are not bulky to clean up in autumn. The variety Sunburst® ('Suncole') does not produce seed pods and is also thornless.
Light/Watering: Grow in full sun or partial shade (preferred).
Fertilizer/Soil and pH: Average, well-drained soil.
Pests/Diseases: Occasionally bothered by foliage pests such as mites and aphids. Does not thrive in the heat and humidity of the Southeast, and leaves may drop due to sudden temperature changes or drought. Protect from strong winds.
Pruning is minimal—remove dead or broken branches in late winter or early spring. Stake until a good basic branch pattern is established.
