Acacia wardellii – Wattle

Acacia wardellii is a medium sized shrub, growing to a small tree, with a white or silvery coloured trunk. It has an open habit and is quite graceful as an ornamental, well suited to inland areas and has been cultivated from Brisbane to Melbourne.
A well-drained, sunny position is ideal.
While borers can reduce the life span, propagating seedlings will maintain this plant in the garden.
