Acacia dealbata

Acacia dealbata is a fast-growing evergreen tree. The main feature is the grey-green evergreen feathery foliage, which offset the cascades of scented yellow flowers in early spring.

Acacia dealbata is also known as the Silver Wattle or Mimosa, and is native to south-eastern Australia.

How to grow

Acacia dealbata does best in full-sun, but is reasonably cold-hardy in typical UK conditions. It is a good choice for poor soils, provided they are well-drained.
