The Twisty Baby Black Locust is an amazing multi-stemmed small tree, growing to about 9 feet tall, and ultimately to perhaps 15 feet, with branches that naturally twist and turn, giving it an exotic and unique look. The lime-green spring leaves turn mid-green, and they also twist and flip, creating curling clusters of leaves. Older trees may produce hanging clusters of fragrant white flowers in spring. A very special tree for small gardens, modern looks, Asian influences and as a patio tree in a planter.

  • Extraordinary twisted multi-stem small tree
  • Spring leaves are lime green
  • Has a ‘bonsai’ look without needing training
  • Mature leaves also twist and curl
  • Can produce striking fragrant white flowers

Despite its crazy looks, the Twisty Baby Black Locust is incredibly tough and easy to grow. It tolerates cold and heat, dry and poor soils, and drought, and pests and diseases are very rare. Plant in full sun, or with a small amount of shade It should be pruned in spring to encourage new growth, which has the maximum twist, and it can be grown for may years in a pot with drainage holes.
