Acacia baileyana – Cootamundra Wattle

 

This is a very fast growing small tree with beautiful grey feathery foliage and bright yellow flowers in winter. The winter flowering is often so prolific that it hides the foliage. The colour and texture of the leaves is a year round feature. This species does tend to seed itself so it is best not to plant it near areas of natural bushland to prevent it from establishing feral populations, however, in urban areas it makes a magnificent small street tree.
