Acacia polybotrya is known as the Western Silver Wattle and develops into a medium shrub. Its home is Central New South Wales and South-east Queensland. The Western Silver Wattle is one of a relatively small number of species with true leaves rather than phyllodes. This “ferny foliage” is grey-green and provides an attractive contrast with bunches of bright yellow spring flowers. This decorative shrub could be cultivated as a specimen plant or incorporated into a shrubbery. Prune after flowering. Propagates readily from seeds and possibly cuttings.
