    Acacia redolens

    $1.95 incl GST
    vanilla wattle

    Currently out of stock
    Available again from Autumn 2017

    Acacia redolens or 'vanilla wattle' is so named because the flowers are vanilla scented. Vanilla wattle is an outstanding plant. Dense, attractive and exteremely hardy it only grows to 50 or 60 cm but spreads making it a highly desirable ground cover plant. This semi prostrate form occurs naturally in the drier outlying areas of the WA South West region.

     

    Acacia redolens (vanilla wattle) has been cultivated extensively in the arid South West States of the US for decades. It is commonly planted along freeways, around shopping centres there in what can only be described as extremely hostile environments. These plants thrive in these conditions. Surprisingly, this species is not all that well known in it's native country so its encouraging to note that its just being intoduced to planting schedules for highway landscaping in the Eastern States of Australia.

     

    Our own plantings at the nursery indicate that vanilla wattle is living up to all the expectations so it comes highly recommended for planting in dry areas and on any soils including heavy clays. Frost and sub-coastal  tolerant.
