Acacia parramattensis is a medium tree or tall shrub with dark green, bipinnate leaves. Ball-shaped cream flowers are displayed in summer and winter. Plants tend to sucker.
The Sydney Green Wattle is a widespread species and occurs on the central coast and tablelands as well as the central west slopes of New South Wales.
We have a number of Sydney Green Wattles growing in our gardens. These plants are about ten years old and have proved to be hardy, free flowering, drought resistant and frost tolerant.
Acacia parramattensis flowers out of the “normal” spring season which is another worthwhile attribute.
Propagate from seed.
