Acacia cognata ‘Mini Cog’ – River Wattle

A 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. While it can be prone to root rot in humid climates, if it is given a good well draining soil it can perform well. It is at its best in the southern states. The dense foliage helps to keep weed growth down, and it is naturally compact.
