Acacia stenophylla (Shoe-String Acacia) - An open, quick-growing tree to 30 feet tall by 20 feet wide. Very long narrow and slightly twisted, drooping leaves lightly clothe weeping branches. Small rounded creamy yellow flowers appear in late winter/spring followed by clusters of brown seed pods. New bark is maroon. A good tree that provides light shade in drought tolerant gardens. Hardy to about 20-25 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.  The information on this page is based on research conducted about this plant in our library and from reliable online sources. We also take into consideration observations of this plant in our nursery crops, as well as of plants growing in the nursery's garden and those in other gardens we visit. We also will incorporate comments that we receive from others and welcome getting feedback from anyone who may have additional information, particularly if it includes cultural information that would aid others in growing Acacia stenophylla.
