Acacia burrowii – Yarran Wattle

Growing into a small to medium tree, this acacia is only just beginning to be appreciated as an ornamental. Its natural habitat is dry inland zones of NSW and southern Qld, and it can be useful as a shade or shelter plant in warm areas.
Being a leguminous plant, this acacia fixes nitrogen in the soil and contributes to natural nitrogen cycling where it grows, improving the health of the soil.
