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.
Borers can reduce the life span, so propagating seedlings will help to produce replacements. Borer damage can also cause limbs or the whole plant to fall, so take care to not plant where these can cause damage.

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.
