The deciduous Honeylocust is a visually charming tree that enjoys wide popularity across much of the U.S. due to its tolerance of an incredibly wide range of adverse conditions. This tree survives through extreme cold and heat, and endures alkaline or salty soils, drought, wind and pollution.
The thornless cultivar ‘Shademaster’ is a faster growing selection with superior drought tolerance that produces very few seed pods. Compared to other Honeylocust cultivars, ‘Shademaster’ holds its leaves later into the fall and flushes with new growth slightly earlier in the spring. Before shedding its leaves for winter, Shademaster Honeylocust highlights the autumn season by changing its foliage from a lovely dark green to a glowing golden-yellow.
