Acacia dealbata (silver wattle) occurs naturally in the Great Dividing Range from Northern New South Wales to Western Victoria as well as Tasmania. This tree will grow to well over 10 metres in height where soils and rainfall are favourable. Silver wattle is a fast growing and excellent colonising species well suited for soil erosion control and soil stabilisation works.
Acacia dealbata (silver wattle) has a low flammability rating so is well suited for screening in fire prone areas. Silver wattle has attractive 'ferny' silver-grey foliage and bright yellow flowers in Spring.
