Clammy Locust
Robinia viscosa /Pea Family

These small trees (or large shrubs) have large pink pea-type flowers. They have sticky hairs on the twigs which are visible in this picture, viscosa means "sticky". I found these blooming along Edgemoor Road in Oak Ridge in early May. In June I noticed that the highway department had sprayed these bushes with herbicide, they were wilted and brown. :(
