Acacia Saligna is also known by other familiar names such as Orange Wattle, and this Australian native can flourish in the hot and arid regions of its native land so that it also naturally thrives out here in the Southwest. These are medium sized trees that can adapt to many landscape applications. They feature a beautiful golden flower display in spring creating a picturesque scene as it complements its large, silvery blue leaves. It can grow an upright, yet broad umbrella-like canopy so that it can provide an attractive shade area in your yard!
The Acacia saligna growth rate is extremely fast, and we like to use them as a screening plant and as a shade tree in any landscape. Orange wattle thrives in a spot that gets plenty of full sun exposure, and it loves the heat! Homeowners and landscapers alike love that these trees keep their leaves throughout the year and rave about their low maintenance features – they require minimal pruning! Once established, they have little to moderate water requirements.
