Acacia podalyriifolia - Queensland silver wattle

Quick Overview

Thank goodness for common names! This native tree is a challenge to spell but such a pretty addition to a garden, with silvery round leaves and typically wattlelike yellow pompom flowers in winter, that appear even on very young plants.
Very popular - look out for bands of marauding flower arrangers, 'pruning' your plant for their arrangements.

Details

Acacia podalyriifolia - Queensland silver wattle
DESCRIPTION:  Wide fast-growing native wattle tree with round silver-grey leaves that botanists call phyllodes because they're actually flat stems. Produces yellow pompom flowers in winter and fat wiggly seedpods afterwards, all very decorative.
USE IN: Native gardens and generally as a feature tree. Very low maintenance and hardy.
LOCATION: Plant in any soil in full sun or shade. Frost-tolerant. Produces lots of seed so take care if you live near bushland as it can spread.
CARE:  Mulch and water regularly until the plant is established, usually around 12 weeks. Prune after flowering and apply a slow release native fertiliser to promote healthy leaf and prolific blooms during the next flowering season.
HEIGHT & WIDTH: 5m H x 5m W.
PLEASE NOTE: These are tube-stock plants, with young healthy roots that will establish quickly in your garden. The pot size is 80 mm x 42 mm wide.
