Acacia cognata ‘Limelight’ River Wattle


A compact form of A.cognata that makes a stunning foliage plant all year round with its graceful weeping foliage. Small ball-shaped flowers are a secondary pleasure when they appear in spring. It can be prone to root rot in humid climates, where it may be short lived, it is at its best in the southern states. The naturally dense growth habit is great for deterring weeds and is low maintenance.
