Re-stock: in 4-6 weeks
Robust resilient wattle that grows in any free-draining soil. Beautiful flowers, decorative seedpods, unusual slender foliage and a weeping habit all contribute to an attractive garden plant - but it is so good at adapting it can naturalise where it is not wanted. Plant with caution if you garden near bushland, and prune after flowering.
