Robinia pseudoacacia L.Fabaceae
Its generic name, robinia, is dedicated to Jean Robin, gardener of the kings of France Henry IV and Louis XIII, who first planted in Europe a seed of this tree from the Appalachian Mountains, from which a specimen emerged that is currently in the Botanical Garden of Paris, with over 400 years old. The species was introduced in Spain in the eighteenth century, thriving rapidly since then both in urban environments, used for ornamental purposes, as in natural environments, used for timber. This process has led to its consideration as an invasive alien species, and that is, this powerful pioneer plant, has many qualities that eventually displace other native species. Gardening is valued by many aspects, including its ability to fix nitrogen enriching soils, its rapid growth or its voluptuous white flowers, which produces a concentrated and attractive nectar for bees from which arises, in turn, the appreciated and fluid acacia honey.
