parramattensis: is known as the Sydney Green Wattle and is a member of
the Mimosaceae family.
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.
