Acacia denticulosa – Sandpaper Wattle

An uncommon and beautiful Acacia with very dense flower heads, Acacia denticulosa is a great plant for attracting butterflies and birds when in flower and seed.
It is a medium-sized, spreading shrub that can be encouraged into a bushier habit through annual tip pruning. It is a fast growing specimen, and will provide flowers from the first year of growing.
It grows best in full sun and needs very good drainage and a dry environment, being native to drought-prone areas of south-western Australia.
