The Plant Attraction


Acacia Dealbata
Also known as: Silver Wattle, Blue Wattle, Mimosa

Native to southeastern Australia in New South Wales, Victoria, Tasmania, and the Australian Capital Territory and widely introduced in Mediterranean, warm temperate, and highland tropical landscapes.
It is a fast-growing evergreen tree or shrub growing up to 30 m tall. Pompom yellow mimosa flowers are produced against a backdrop of feathery bluish-grey foliage. In spring the fragrant, nectar-rich blooms provide a valuable source of food for bees and other insects.
The plant has smooth, greyish green to dark grey bark which becomes fissured with age. The timber is useful for furniture and indoor work, but has limited uses, mainly in craft furniture and turning. It has a honey color, often with distinctive figures like birdseye and tiger stripes. Overall it is mainly cultivated for its beauty and often used for cut flowers.
It is not particular to any one type of soil, provided it is reasonably well drained. It does not survive prolonged frost so no matter what zone your in, it will freeze. In frost prone areas it can successfully be grown in containers, and moved to a frost free position in the winter.

Choose from packs of 20, 100, and 1,000 seeds.
