Particularly well-suited to low desert regions throughout California and Arizona, this Australian native evergreen tree brings a certain lushness to otherwise arid regions. Naturally open, vertical and graceful in habit, a mature specimen will reach 20-45 feet in height with a 10-20 foot spread. Its naturally narrow form makes it an excellent candidate for tight applications and it will softly filter undesirable views. The Shoestring Acacia is so named because of its very narrow and very long leaves or phyllodes that resemble needles on a pine tree. Its hanging foliage moves beautifully with even the slightest breeze. Come late winter or early spring, clusters of light yellow flowers appear and are followed by odd looking white fruit that looks like something out of a Dr. Seuss story.
