Family of leguminoseae
This plant was imported from America at the beginning of 17th century
and it arrived in Italy at the end of 18th century, but today it is so
spread that is a common plant of the local flora. It blossoms in scented
bunches in the period June-July (it is very common to find it along the
railway escarpments and along rivers) and its flowers are normally visited
by bees, which produce a delicate and scented honey, This type of honey
has relaxing properties, the same properties of the acacia flowers.
