Acacia buxifolia ‘Prostrate’ – Box-leaf Wattle

Acacia buxifolia ‘Prostrate’ is a popular ornamental species, and this form is great as a groundcover, or where there is no space for a shrub. Sometimes plants have purple-coloured new growth, in order to promote this aspect, the plant must be propagated from cuttings, grafting or aerial layering from the parent plant.
Produces large amounts of ball-shaped flowers in spring, a delightful display.
This species is very frost tolerant and easy to grow. Grows best if planted between other plants, to protect from wind.
