Acacia covenyi – Blue Bush Wattle

Acacia covenyi – blue bush wattle is a super hardy wattle for most sites apart from waterlogged soils, and is very easy care. It is a great foliage plant, having beautiful blue-grey leaves which contrast nicely with other plants. An added bonus is the fragrant golden-yellow ball flowers in spring. Growing to around 6 metres high and 2 to 3 metres wide, it is a good screen and windbreak plant. Tolerates drought and frost well, and is great for coastal areas. Likes full sun to light shade.
