Which type of robinia is this?

Posted: 12/08/2017 at 19:06

The first time I saw one of those I thought it had a disease. Looks deformed to me. Not attractive (to me, each to his own)

yes, lots of them, and trees. I can't help myself, it's an obsession,.

Clerodendrum trichotomum is easy, Chimonanthus praecox (maybe not quite so easy, I only got one) lots of different Cotoneasters and Loniceras. Eleagnus umbellata and angustifolia, Catalpa. The list is long and will be longer.

I have huge flowerless bushes as well. Don't know which sort, given to me by a friend. Her plants are all the same

aphids secrete the sticky stuff and insects love it. I think the blackness is dust etc stuck to it

Tree Paeony. They're not ripe yet, black and shiny is ripe and the pods open.

What is this plant?

Many years ago I bought a Mulberry by mail order. Never seen one so had no idea what it looked like. Over years doubts started creeping in, it was supposed to be late to leaf but it was one of the first. The leaves didn't look like the illustrations in the books (years before internet). Eventually it produced white, 5 petalled flowers followed by little cherries
