Acacia pendula (Weeping Myall) - A small, slow-growing upright tree to 25 feet tall by 15 feet wide with weeping branches and silvery blue-gray narrow 2-3 inch long leaves. Small globular pale yellow flowers are rarely seen. Native to New South Wales and Queensland, Australia. This very attractive tree is bushy and full when young and often takes on interesting ghostly shape with age. Drought resistant. Hardy to 15-20 degrees F. The name Acacia comes either from the Greek word 'akazo' meaning "to sharpen" or from the Egyptian word 'akakia', a name given to the Egyptian Thorn, Acacia arabica.  This description is based on our research and observations of this plant as it grows in our nursery and our own landscape plantings and in other gardens that we visit. We also incorporate comments we receive from others and appreciate receiving feedback of any kind from those who have additional information about this plant, particularly if they disagree with what we have written or if they have additional cultural tips that would aid others in growing Acacia pendula
