Small, silver-grey leaves on a rounded frame of branches give the Mulga Acacia an airy appearance. Bright yellow linear flowers provide a showy display in the spring, though the pollen is a potential allergen. Native to the Australian Mulga shrublands, this long-lived evergreen is built to survive a variety of conditions, from full sun to part shade, and from moist to dry soil. In addition, it is tolerant of seaside conditions and cold hardy to 15° F. Provide this Acacia well-drained soil, as it can be susceptible to Root Rot. The Mulga tree was used by Australia’s indigenous people in seedcakes and its wood used to make implements, shields and bowls. At a mature size of 15-20’ x 15-20’, this tough, drought tolerant shrub will grow to a small tree that is suitable for erosion control, under utility lines, patios, and in xeric gardens.
