Narrow Leaf Wattle Acacia Tree
An interesting and variable Acacia species from southern Australia, the Narrow Leaf Wattle isn’t the most cold hardy species in the genus, but it’s got a chance in the most protected parts of USDA Zone 8b and certainly zone 9 and up. Leaves are incredibly long and narrow and provide nice texture. Yellow flowers cover the tree in late winter to spring and are beloved by pollinators.
