A._vestita.JPG (37231 bytes)Acacia vestita the Weeping Boree is a medium to tall spreading shrub with grey-green pendulous foliage. In spring the Weeping Boree is covered with masses of golden yellow flowers. Both foliage and flowers are features of this hardy wattle. We have a number of specimens growing at Yallaroo. One plant is at least ten years old. Acacia vestita is widely cultivated and has proved to be hardy, fast growing and free flowering. Try the Weeping Boree as a specimen shrub or as a component of shrubberies or hedgerows. Pruning will improve foliage density and flowering. Acacia vestita occurs in central NSW. Propagate from seed and possibly cuttings.
