A lovely choice for a feature or shade tree in the garden or in a large open space.

We must like this tree because it's growing in our garden. Very aptly named as the foliage is delicately divided and 'lacy' and you guessed it, a ruby wine colour. The foliage has bronze tones as it matures. Forms a graceful round headed small tree. Lovely to sit under. Deciduous.

This particular cultivar of Gleditsia is thorn-less and makes a very attractive medium sized tree. The leaf colour will be at its best if grown in an open sunny spot. One of my favourites.
