Origen: la robinia o falsa acacia es originaria de Estados Unidos.

Se trata de un árbol caducifolio muy resistente a diferentes condiciones de cultivo. Las ramas jóvenes tienen espinas.

Las flores, suavemente perfumadas, son blancas en la variedad normal. La variedad "casque rouge" tiene flores rosas y procede del injerto de Robinia viscosa sobre un pie de R. pseudoacacia. Al parecer las flores son comestibles. Lo he sabido recientemente así que no las he probado aún. Su infusión tiene propiedades calmantes y antiespasmódicas.

Su madera es muy resistente, de características similares a la del roble.

English version:
Origin: USA
Common name: false acacia or black locust.
Deciduous tree, fast growing and suitable for different kinds of soils and growing conditions. Young branches have spines.
Flowers, softly scented, are generally white, but "casque rouge" cultivar has pink ones. It comes from grafting a scion of Robinia viscosa on a rootstock of Robinia pseudoacacia. Flowers are edible (I didn´t know until now so I haven´t eaten them yet). They posses antispasmodic properties.
Its timber is very resistant, with similar properties to oak timber.

    Do you have any solutions to protect against hackers?
