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.

WHERE TO GET YOUR PLANT
Once you have found the plant that looks right for you, the next step is where to buy it.
Most nurseries stock a good range of plants, but due to space and supplies, they may not always have the plant that you are searching for in stock. If they don’t, they may be able to order it in for you if you request it.
Specialist nurseries are also able to give great advice, and if they don’t have the plant you have planned on, they can often suggest alternatives that will also work well for you.
