Acacia glaucocarpa – Feathery Wattle

Acacia glaucocarpa makes a wonderful low maintenance ornamental plant, but needs good pruning each year to keep it in line. The Feathery Wattle has attractive foliage, and displays a mass of flowers in autumn. Prefers a warm climate as it is not very tolerant of frost; grows best in inland, tropical and sub-tropical zones. This Acacia is also tolerant of greywater.
