Acacia salicina (Willow Acacia)


This fast-growing, thornless tree is native to Australia. The upright growth and pendulous branches create a weeping silhouette. Long, narrow gray-green foliage enhances this effect. This tree requires well-drained soils and deep, but widely spaced irrigation to prevent wind-throw. Pale creamy white flowers in the spring are followed by woody bean-like pods. Plant in full sun and reflected heat locations.
