Acacia podalyriifolia (Pearl Acacia)

Pearl Acacia, Queensland Silver Wattle, Mt Morgan Wattle, Golden Wattle, Pearl Wattle, Queensland Wattle, Silver Wattle


Fast-growing, Acacia podalyriifolia (Pearl Acacia) is a large evergreen shrub or small tree adorned with silvery-gray round leaves that are satiny to the touch. The foliage remains lovely all year round. In late winter to early spring, masses of scented, fluffy, pale yellow flowers cover the branches and create a striking floral display. Relatively short-lived (10-15 years), Pearl Acacia makes a dramatic statement in the garden. Excellent patio tree.

  • Grows up to 20-30 ft. tall (6-9 m) and 20-40 ft. wide (6-12 m).
  • Performs best in full sun in neutral to acid, well-drained soils. Will not tolerate summer water unless the soil drains very well.
  • Prune heavily after flowering to keep is compact.
  • Native to eastern Australia.
