"Bristly Locust"

It does sound like the legume tree, Robinia hispida.  It's blooming right
now here in Georgia.  Tends to be a smallish tree, to 30 or so feet and
often shrubby in hedgerows.  The piniksh flowers droop like black locust 
but look a little more like wisteria.  The "hispida" part of the name 
refers to the many hairs all over the young twigs.  It is armed with mean 
thorns.  Many consider it a weed, but under control it can be very nice.
