Acacia cognata ‘Waterfall’ – River Wattle


A prostrate form of this very popular and hardy wattle that retains its foliage along the stem as it matures. The base from which the stems emerge will, over time, develop its own architectural character, adding to the intrigue of the plant. For dramatic impact, plant in tall containers or large pipes along walkways, or beside waterfalls or cascades, or on sloping banks where landscape design calls for an especially strong note. It also looks stunning when grafted onto a tall stem.
