Our robinia frisia has died possibly from I'm a fungal disease. Please could you suggest a similar replacement. We particularly liked the yellow leaves and the airy open habit of the robinia.



There has been lots of Robinias dying from a root disease and my local garden centre has stopped selling them. Gleditsia triacanthos (Honey Locust) would be my choice as a substitute. If you are going to replant in the same or general area then perhaps use Rootgrow in the planting hole just to be on the safe side. Might not be a bad idea to remove some of the surrounding soil from the Robinia.
