Acacia wardellii – Wattle

Acacia wardellii is a medium sized shrub, growing to a small tree, with a white or silvery coloured trunk. It has an open habit and is quite graceful as an ornamental, well suited to inland areas and has been cultivated from Brisbane to Melbourne.
A well-drained, sunny position is ideal.
Borers can reduce the life span, so propagating seedlings will help to produce replacements. Borer damage can also cause limbs or the whole plant to fall, so take care to not plant where these can cause damage.
