Our Robinia which we planted three years ago has now died. First year was great with lots of growth. Last year started ok but with all the rain lost all its leaves and then when rain eased up a bit some leaves sprouted again but with no great show. Now completely dead. It is planted on very sandy ground so do not believe poor drainage would have been the problem. Very sad as it was set to be a beautiful tree. We have other Robinias in the area so will be interested to see if they suffer too but it is too soon to know as leaves do not come out until May.
