Plant description

acacia pravissima bushwalk baby

Acacia 'Bushwalk baby' is a delightful low growing wattle with small wedge shaped grey leaves and yellow ball-like flowers in spring. It is perfect for rockeries or gracefully spilling out of a tub, hanging basket or over a retaining wall. Even when it is not in flower, the grey foliage is attractive. Just give it a light trim after flowering has finished to keep it tidy. Tolerant of both frost and drought. Spreads to around a metre and a half wide, and the dense foliage will deter weed growth around it. Mulch while it is establishing. Prefers a well drained soil. Feed with a good native fertiliser in spring.
