    Description

Acacia dealbata - Silver Wattle

This listing is for a packet of 25 seeds of this Australian Acacia.

Acacia dealbata (known as silver wattle or blue wattle) is a species of Acacia, native to southeastern Australia in New South Wales, Victoria, Tasmania, and the Australian Capital Territory and widely introduced in Mediterranean, warm temperate, and highland tropical landscapes.

It is a fast growing evergreen tree or shrub growing up to 30 m tall, typically a pioneer species after fire. The leaves are bipinnate, glaucous blue-green to silvery grey, 1–12 cm (occasionally to 17 cm) long and 1–11 cm broad, with 6–30 pairs of pinnae, each pinna divided into 10–68 pairs of leaflets; the leaflets are 0.7–6 mm long and 0.4–1 mm broad. The flowers are produced in large racemose inflorescences made up of numerous smaller globose bright yellow flowerheads of 13–42 individual flowers. The fruit is a flattened pod 2–11.5 cm long and 6–14 mm broad, containing several seeds. Trees generally do not live longer than 30 to 40 years, after which in the wild they are succeeded by other species where bushfires are excluded. In moist mountain areas, a white lichen can almost cover the bark, which may contribute to the descriptor "silver".

Introduced as an ornamental in many parts of the world including Europe and the UK.  It is tolerant of some frost, but not extended freezes (especially when still young).

Also makes a stunning bonsai tree and training can start in the first year from seed, so ideal for those impatient to see the results of their efforts.

Very easy from seed, the germination rates are very high for this species, providing the seed coat is 'damaged' to allow the seed to take on water.  Full growing instructions can be downloaded via this link - Growing Instructions
