Street Keeper columnar honeylocust

Gleditsia triacanthos f. inermis 'Draves'

Easy to Maintain

Characteristics:
This thornless cultivated example of honeylocust features a tight, narrow form that has long been lacking in urban tolerant varieties. The ascending branch structure gives Street Keeper a canopy that is only half as wide as other cultivars. Foliage is deeper green than other selections.
