Gleditsia triacanthos  'Continental'

Gleditsia triacanthos  'Continental'

The narrow growth habit and tough disposition makes this tree suitable for a wide range of sites from parks and gardens to street planting. An ideal small to medium shade tree, it provides dappled shade in summer through the delicate, evenly-coloured, pinnate foliage that imparts a soft texture which belies this cultivar’s toughness.
