{any insight as to whether a sunburst locust is a good rooted tree for a
hosta garden.....thx...ken}


I have a large one in the back yard - it is kissing kin to the Morain
Honey Locust tree - sterile and thornless.

The roots are rather shallow and it does send up shoots from the roots. 
At this time of the year it sheds lots of detritus in the form of flower
pods that never form.  Dirty!!   IMHO, it is not nearly as bad as maples.
 I have raised the beds around mine, as you know.  Stick to your Oaks -
wish I had 26 years ago.
