I recall reading that seeds were imported in large quantities from the US as 
the next great thing for forestry in the UK - back in the late 1600's  - they 
were snapped up by eager estate-owners, and none survive today - even as 
suckers which is rather odd considering their habit. TROBI has the biggest as 
60cm?; but their website is not working very well, and when I tried to check 
using the advanced search it returned no records..........

According to Scott Leathhart's brilliant book 'Whence our Trees' the first 
known Robinia planted by Jean Robin's son, arborist to King Louis XII in the 
Jardins des Plantes in 1635 was up until around 1990 still producing live 
shoots from its stump.
