Acacia iteaphylla – Flinders Range Wattle

This adaptable wattle features beautiful silvery weeping foliage with a great display of pale yellow flowers in spring. It is a medium to large shrub with longish, narrow leaves and it varies in the degree to which these weep, with some forms of the species being more pendulous than others. The seed pods also have an ornamental, silvery appearance when they are immature. Prune lightly after flowering and watch for borers in the trunk.
