GLEDITSIA ‘Sunburst’ 🌞

The warming influence of summer has begun to make its presence felt.  It’s finally that time of year when we can stand by the open ranch sliders, surveying the garden and making plans, as we enjoy that first cup of coffee whilst the day wakes.

One of most fitting trees for such mornings is the GLEDITSIA ‘Sunburst’ – which is why it’s featured as our tree of the week.  A fast growing tree, the young leaves look resplendent in yellow before changing to a refreshing, vibrant lime-green.  Come Autumn, they turn to the type of golden shade that defines the season.

Preferring an open, sunny position, the sunburst is deciduous and will grow to 6 x 5 meters.
