This Acacia has silvery green feathery mimosa-type leaves and is evergreen. It is a fast grower and it blooms all year round.
Outdoors it is not very cold hardy but can be enjoyed in cooler climates as a potted or houseplant. Indoors they will grow to a much smaller size than they would outdoors in the ground.
They also make excellent bonsai specimens and have fragrant blooms. If you do grow yours outdoors, birds will love eating its seeds.
