Chance led me under a robinia or iron-wood tree, the trunk of which will defy the best-tempered axe.
Its generic name, robinia, is in honor of a Frenchman, Robin.
The robinia Pseudacacia, inermis and tortuosa were both splendid trees, which ornamented the grass lawn.
Next on the wall is the beautiful Rose Acacia (robinia hispida).
Odontota dorsalis is a small leaf-beetle found on robinia pseudacacia.
We proceeded along its valley, where colossal planes and elms, as well as robinia and willows, afforded a welcome shade.
From time to time, I see her also cutting bits out of the robinia, the quince-tree and the cherry-tree.
They fold up when light is too strong, as in robinia; it produces the same effect as want of light.
robinia hispida, sometimes called Rose Acacia, is a native species of the Locust.
The fact is, the robinia loves more sun than it gets in most parts of our islands and a hotter soil.
