This tree appears to be chiefly confined to the Alle-ghanies, where it is found on the banks of rivers in Georgia and Carolina, growing to a height varying from thirty to forty feet. The bark is of a dull red, particularly that of young trees and shoots, and is covered with a clammy, adhesive substance. The branches are armed with spines, and the f oliage is thicker and of a darker green than that of the common species. Unlike the common locust-tree, its flowers, which occur in numerous open bunches four or five inches long, are of a beautiful rose color mixed with white, but are destitute of fragrance. The properties of its wood are similar to those of the common locust, but it is considered less durable. As an ornamental tree it is rendered conspicuous by its large, roseate flowers. It is propagated and treated in the same manner as the common species, from which it is dissimilar in but very few points.
