Bower Beauty is a compact form of Acacia cognata that makes a stunning foliage plant all year round. It has graceful weeping foliage on a low and mounding shrub, and it is delightfully dense. New growth is bronze coloured, giving an added foliage bonus. Small ball-shaped flowers are a secondary pleasure when they appear in spring. Prone to root rot in humid climates, it is at its best in the southern states. A great easy care plant for low maintenance gardens.
