The Q&A Archives: Twisty Baby Locust and Suckers

Question: Do you offer a variety or know of a variety of Twisty Baby black Locust that does not sucker?

Answer: I'm afraid it is the nature of locust (Robinia pseudoacacia) to produce suckers and Twisty Baby is no exception. You can control the suckers by planting in a large pot and sinking the pot into the ground. Aside from that, unless you want your locust to colonize and area, you'll need to prune out the suckers when they appear.
