Acacia | Robinia - Candle
In collaboration with the Paris national Museum of natural History, Carrière Frères highlights plants that are unusual, exotic and packed with history.
An ancestral tree with a flowery sweetness, the acacia unveils a green coolness coupled with golden floral aspects, sunny and honey-filled.
Native to the eastern U.S., the acacia, or black locust tree, has lush, cool green foliage, flat pods that hold their seeds and clusters of sweet, cream-colored flowers. Cultivated in Europe since the 17th Century, the tree can live for over 300 years. Today, in Paris, you can still see two unique specimens, planted by King Henri IV's gardener back in 1601.
