Plant description

acacia fettuccini03

acacia fettuccini02

acacia fettuccini01

Acacia 'Fettuccini' is a compact form of A.cognata that makes a stunning foliage plant all year round with its rippled weeping foliage which gives a wavy appearance to the plant. It is a great easy care plant for low maintenance gardens. Small ball-shaped flowers are a secondary pleasure when they appear in spring. The foliage is lime green, and new growth has coppery tones. Prone to root rot in humid climates, it is at its best in the southern states. Good in sun to part shade.
