Out of stock
A sister plant for Acacia cognata Burgundy Cascade - they share the lovely maroon-tinted weeping foliage, slender long grassy leaves, and gentle cascading waterfall form, but Mop Top is the baby of the family, reaching knee-to-hip high in contrast to Burgundy Cascade's 3m mature height. They'd make a striking pairing planted together.
