In early summer, Robinia × margaretta 'Pink Cascade' produces a wonderful display of deep pink flowers that hang in racemes around 15-20cm long. The pea-like, large flowers are stronger in colour than most pink flowering False Acacia trees and release a pleasant fragrance. Mid-green, pinnate leaves turn yellow in autumn before falling.

Robinia 'Pink Cascade' has a rounded, open head and you can expect a height and spread of 6x4 metres in 20 years. 'Pink Cascade' is also known as 'Casque Rouge' and it is hybrid between Robinia hispida var. kelsey and Robinia pseudoacacia. It is best grown in full sun although can tolerate some shade.

Planting Advice for Robinia × margaretta 'Pink Cascade' Trees

Our pot grown Pink False Acacia trees can be planted at any time of the year. Begin by removing weeds and grass within a metre of your desired planting hole. Dig a square hole as deep as your root mass and approximately 2x as wide, then we advise sprinkling root grow in the hole to help the tree establish.

Remove the pot, gently loosen the roots and place into the planting hole. Mix 50% of the original soil with 50% high quality compost, fill in the hole and firm around gently, being care not to bank the soil up around the collar of the tree as this can cause problems.

We recommend planting False Acacia trees with a stake and tie. For single stakes, place the stake at an angle to avoid penetrating the rootmass and knock it in until it is firm. Use a buckle tie, placing the spacer between the stake and tree.

Aftercare Advice for Robinia × margaretta 'Pink Cascade' Trees

If you’re planting Robinia in spring, summer or dry weather, water well and regularly for the first few months. Increase watering if there are extended periods of hot or dry weather. If you’re planting in autumn, you may only need to water a little. We stock a range of irrigation kits to aid watering.

Once planted, keep the area free of competing weeds and grass for the first couple of growing seasons. If your area is prone to rabbits, we advise using a rabbit guard.

Pruning Advice for Robinia 'Pink Cascade' Trees

False Acacia trees do not require regular pruning. To tidy up your pink false acacia tree, you can remove any crowded or damaged branches in mid-summer, this will give enough time for the wounds to heal before the frost arrives. Make sure to wear protective gloves and long sleeved clothing when pruning robinia trees.
