    Acacia wattsiana

    $1.95 incl GST
    Gladstone wattle

    Currently out of stock

    Acacia wattsiana is commonly known 'Gladstone wattle' ..that's Gladstone in the mid-north of South Australia not the one in Queensland.! The wattsiana part probably commemorates someone called Watts! This is a lesser known wattle but one that has a lot of potential in cultivation. Gladstone wattle is a close relative of Acacia iteaphylla, the much better known Flinders Ranges wattle with which it shares an ajoining natural range. Whilst Acacia iteaphylla has grey foliage, Acacia wattsiana has green and the phyllodes are wider.

     

    Acacia wattsiana (Gladstone wattle) grows some 3 - 4 metres in height, ground hugging and dome shaped in profile. It is drought hardy and likes sandy soil in particular but is adaptable to heavier soils
