Be careful if you buy this, it is indeed frisia robinia - the golden version. I bought a grafted one, high graft, which did fine for a while, but after 3 - 4 years and a very wet cold winter, it separated at the graft and died. I'm not sure if they are bought on their own roots, if so that would be better, or with a low graft if possible. Does look stunning though, it does have long, very sharp thorns after a while, not numerous but very sharp.
