Rangy east coast summer-flowering wattle that adapts to wherever it finds itself - seaside gardens, roadside nature strips, bushland acreage, outback stations (with some extra summer watering), tropical back yards, and highland hillsides.
APPEARANCE : Tall open native wattle tree with very long slightly curved leaves and pale yellow-cream pompom flowers during summer. Juvenile leaves are the classic tiny fishbone wattle foliage. Grows all down the east coast from Atherton to Gippsland. USE FOR : Backyard tree in larger gardens, native garden planting, coastal gardens, erosion control, timber. PLANTING : Plant in any well-drained soil in full sun. Drought tolerant once established, and will come through frost to -7C. Tolerates urban pollution well. CARE: Mulch and water regularly until the plant is established, usually around 12 weeks, and protect from frost while young. Suckers if roots are damaged so mulch well at the base unless you are using this attribute to knit banks and slopes together. HEIGHT & WIDTH: 8-10 m H x 4-10 m W. YOUR PLANTS: These are tubestock plants, young healthy plants with new roots that will establish quickly in your garden. The pot size is 80 mm x 42 mm wide. You can see an example in the image gallery
