Gleditsia triacanthos 'Limelight' (Honey Locust) Details

“Limelight” is a variety of the commonly known, Honey Locust, and is a deciduous tree grown for its impressive stature and foliage. It produces pale yellow-green leaves which develop golden yellow tones in autumn before falling. The foliage is complemented with small, green-yellow flowers in late spring which result in interesting seed pods. It grows with a rounded and spreading crown to about 9 m tall and 6 m wide, performing best when planted in full sun on a well-drained site. It will tolerate frosts, cool climates, and coastal conditions but does require a degree of wind protection to avoid broken branches. “Limelight” makes for a lovely specimen and is ideal for adding to a mixed planting, for avenue planting, or using to border an entranceway.
