Acacia retinodes or 'wirilda' is a variable shrub native to south eastern Australia. Wirilda grows to around 4 - 6 metres, sometimes a little bigger and fast. An ideal choice for a quick screening effect to block out visual pollution.
Wirilda has been used extensively in the built urban environment, particularly along freeways. Prefers moderate rainfall and moist soils. Adapatable to most soils including clay.
Acacia retinodes is an excellent choice for inclusion in rural shelterbelts and soil conservation and erosion control works.
