SpecificationsGleditsia Limegold is an elegant, attractive deciduous medium-sized tree perfect for creating a shady, cool area in your garden. The foliage is compiled of graceful fern-like leaves which during spring and early summer is a lovely fresh golden shade while later in summer the leaves turn a cooling lime-gold. In autumn the foliage turns yellow before falling. Being deciduous makes this the ideal tree to cover a tropical garden as the dapled shade is ideal. The flowers on this thornless tree are inconspicuous green racemes which are produced in spring. After flowering large brown legumes are produced and these tend to persist on the tree well into winter. Being a vigorous grower this tree is highly suitable as a shade tree in many situations including larger properties, domestic gardens, also as street trees. This popular cultivar is best grown in full sun and performs better in moist, deep, fertile soils but will tolerate a wide range of soil types including moderately saline soils, urban areas, coastal locations, air pollution, as well as some levels of drought and flooding; will tolerate poor drainage. As with most plants, Gleditsia is waterwise but water well until established, also mulching is beneficial to retain moisture. In the early years an annual autumn pruning of the long 'whippy' branches will promote a strong framework and maintain shape as a feature tree. Gleditsia Limegold will grow to 9 to 12m tall and 6m wide.
