Acacia lineata – Streaked Wattle

The Streaked Wattle is a great adaptable garden plant as it is hardy to both drought and frost, growing naturally in dry forest throughout inland NSW. It has a dense habit, very bushy, and would make a great choice for a flower garden as it puts on a spectacular display in the spring. Its dense, bushy habit makes it great as a windbreak, for planting between trees and providing shelter for small birds. Pruning soon after flowering helps to promote a dense habit and prolific flowering.
