The Mulga Acacia is one of the most versatile water-wise trees used in landscape designs throughout the Southwest. Their botanical name is Acacia aneura, and these fascinating trees are native to Australia, where they can be found growing in dry regions, so they are naturally well-suited for desert environments.
Mulga Acacias are adorned with small gray/silvery leaves and offer gorgeous seasonal yellow blooms that can transform any yard with picturesque beauty. This evergreen tree is the perfect choice where a smaller tree can fit as an accent and is ideal for shading a confined area!
Mulga Acacias are uniquely sized and shaped trees, so we like to plant them in clusters where they can be used as a privacy screen, or used as a smaller free-standing tree. They love full sun exposure and can grow very quickly with very little maintenance! Once established, this Mulga tree will have low to moderate water needs.
Anyone looking for a low-water-use landscaping plant will love Mulga Acacia for its attractive foliage and bloom. And if you want a smaller tree that’s great for poolside planting, a Mulga tree is an excellent choice! For additional guidance on where to plant these trees, we recommend taking advantage of our professional landscape design consultations available for free at our nurseries and for a small fee at your location!
