Robina pseudoacacia 'Purple Robe' is the formal name of your locust tree, and you have chosen one of the prettiest forms with dark rose-pink flowers on a compact, rounded tree that will probably grow to a maximum of 30' tall. You can expect flowers in May or early June, and they generally last 7-10 days.
