Bailey’s Acacia Tree
A stunning blue foliaged acacia and also one that has a decent bit of cold hardiness to it. The textured blue foliage makes an excellent back drop to the show of yellow flowers that cover the tree in late winter. Summer pruning and little to no water after it’s established will also help curtail any excessive growth that could break under heavy snow or winds. *This is not the purpurea form of Acacia baileyana. These trees feature blue foliage without the purple new growth that the purpurea form has.*
