    Acacia paradoxa

    $1.95 incl GST
    hedge wattle

    Currently out of stock
    Available again from Autumn 2017

    Acacia paradoxa known commonly as 'hedge wattle' or 'kangaroo thorn' occurs extensively in bushland and along roadsides throughout Southern Australia. Hedge wattle is a rounded or spreading dense shrub to a height of 2 - 3 metres. It is very prickly and as a consequence was considered undesirable by our early landholders. More recently, hedge wattle has gained significant popularity as an attractive tough, hardy, functional shrub that provides a nesting habitat for wrens and other small birds where the prickly nature of the plant provides very effective protection from predators such as foxes and cats. It is also an excellent 'crowd control' plant for property boundaries etc.

     

    Acacia paradoxa (hedge wattle) also puts on a brilliant flowering display in early Spring. This species grows well on clay soils and is drought and frost tolerant.
