Acacia baileyana - Cootamundra wattle

Back in stock: Growing - please be patient
$4.60
Out of stock
Resilient adaptable wattle, with feathery delicate mimosa foliage and masses of iconic lemon-yellow powderpuff flowers in winter. It's perhaps the epitome of Aussie acacia, appearing in stamps, in song and in artworks; and like an Aussie backpacker, has travelled round the globe and made itself at home. Will grow happily anywhere, even frost locations - a little too happily sometimes, so use judgement when planting, especially in more rural locations. Check your local council advice on plants.
