Acacia cognata ‘Green Mist’ – River Wattle

A relatively compact form of Acacia cognata that makes a stunning foliage plant all year round with its graceful weeping foliage. Small ball-shaped flowers are a secondary pleasure when they appear in spring. Prone to root rot in humid climates, it is at its best in the southern states. Somewhat taller with a more open habit than other compact forms of A. cognata.
