Gleditsia triacanthos 'Green Glory'

Gleditsia triacanthos 'Green Glory'

Thornless honey locust 'Green Glory'

Description

Gleditsia triacanthos ‘Green Glory’ (Thornless honey locust ‘Green Glory’) was introduced as a cultivar by Ralph Synnestvedt in North America in 1964. In contrast to Gleditsia triacanthos, this lovely selection is thornless. The tree is a steady grower and can reach up to 20 metres in height. The crown is transparent and egg-shaped.

The flowering period of the Gleditsia triacanthos ‘Green Glory’ is in June-July. The tree blooms discreet, yellow-green flowers in hanging racemes. The leaves are dark-green, bud bronze and turn a lovely golden yellow in autumn. The Thornless honey locust ‘Green Glory’ has pinnate and bipinnate leaves that stay on the tree for a long time. After flowering, it bears striking legumes, which also stay on for a long time in winter.

Pavement, strong wind, coastal wind, air pollution, heat, drought and brief flooding are tolerated very well by the Thornless honey locust ‘Green Glory’. That and its 5A winter hardiness definitely make this species a future-proof climate tree. Gleditsia triacanthos ‘Green Glory’ can be widely used on streets and squares, but also in roof gardens and in industrial areas. Furthermore, with a nectar value and pollen value of 5, this species is also a fantastic bee tree. The perfect environment would be normal, not too wet soil with a neutral to acidic pH value and sunlight.
