Acacia iteaphylla or 'flinders ranges wattle' is an attractive shrub to around 5 metres in height but more typically to 3 metres or so. As the common name implies Flinders Ranges wattle originates from an arid, dry region and is therefore very hardy. Acacia iteaphylla adapts well to higher rainfall sites and is extensively cultivated throughout Australia and in particular in cities such as Melbourne.
Acacia iteaphylla (Flinders Ranges wattle) is fast growing and has verry arractive grey foliage with pale lemon coloured flowers in Autumn or early Winter. This is an excellent species for hedge or screen plantings. Frost hardy.
