Acacia boormanii (Snowy River Wattle) - A fast-growing multi-stemmed shrub to 15 feet tall with thin, graceful, silvery stems/branches and small, narrow gray-green leaves. Bright yellow flowers form in clusters in early spring. Plant in full sun in well-drained to moderately heavy soil where it will withstand some drought, but looks better if watered regularly. Hardy to 10-15 degrees F or less. Tolerates seaside conditions. A good specimen plant that can be trained into a single tree or can form a copse of suckers. 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.  The information on this webpage is based on research conducted about this plant in our nursery library, from online sources, as well as from observations made of it as it grows in the nursery in containers, in the nursery's garden and in other gardens where we have observed it growing. We will also incorporate comments received from others and welcome getting feedback from those who may have additional information, particularly if this information includes cultural information that would aid others in growing  Acacia boormanii.
