Acacia baileyana ‘Prostrate’ Cootamundra Wattle

The prostrate form of Acacia baileyana has feathery silver-grey bipinnate foliage with masses of spherical flower heads 1 cm in diameter. It is an easy care plant, and the dense habit makes for even less maintenance as it deters weed growth. A great plant for embankments and as a general ground cover. It also looks great when grafted, as it forms a beautiful cascading form. Best in a sunny spot in a well drained soil, but can tolerate most soils. Waterwise and can take medium frost.
