Acacia vestita – Hairy Wattle

The weeping greyish foliage coupled with a manageable size and brilliant spring displays of golden yellow flowers have made this a very popular wattle in cultivation. It forms a medium to tall shrub with very dense foliage that makes it an excellent screening plant or low windbreak. A light trim after flowering and a handful of low phosphorus fertiliser will ensure a magnificent display the following season.
