Flat Leaf Wattle

Acacia glaucoptera

An attractive shrub that grows to 1.5 metres tall with blue-green wing like foliage, red-tinged new growth and golden yellow globular flowers. This uncommon variety is grown for its unusual foliage and requires regular pruning to promote new growth and keep it looking its best. This shrub is fast growing and prefers well drained soil in a sunny to part shade position and requires little water once established.   It attracts bees, butterflies and other insects as well as seed eating birds and provides good bird habitat.
