We've been longing to get Acacia cognata into the plant range for a while, and so we went one better and got this lovely large maroon-tinted version for extra garden appeal! Slender long grassy leaves, gentle cascading waterfall form, and that blush of burgundy. Despite its good looks this native is rugged and will have a go almost anywhere.
Acacia cognata 'Burgundy Cascade' - river wattle, bower wattle
