Acacia spectabilis ~ Mudgee Wattle

Acacia spectabilis is a beauty in all seasons. The best blooming period is in March, but Acacia spectabilis will often have a few blossoms. During March the weight of the blossoms will bow down the branches. The soft gray-green leaves make this small tree a compliment to any garden. Expect Acacia spectabilis to grow to 12-15 feet. The pale bark will provide an interesting silhouette against darker foliaged plants. Our Mudgee Wattle went through Winter temperatures below 20 F without damage. Acacia spectabilis seems quite happy on a lean water budget.
