- Medium-size tree that blooms pale yellow flowers from spring through fall
- Fast-growing tree
The Shoestring Acacia, Acacia stenophylla, is an almost perfect medium-sized tree with a weeping habit and long and narrow green leaves that provide filtered shade and also help give it its ‘shoestring' appearance. Native to Australia, this thornless, low maintenance tree produces very little litter, so we like to plant them near swimming pools! We also like to plant them against walls or group them to create an attractive and peaceful grove. These are beautiful trees all year, accentuated by an open branch structure, maroon-colored bark, and the showy cream to yellow flowers that appear from spring through fall!
Shoestring Acacia trees thrive in reflected heat and like to grow in a location that gets plenty of full sun exposure. Waterwise trees such as Acacia stenophylla have little to moderate watering needs once established, and we like to feed them with a general-purpose fertilizer before new growth begins in spring. We recommend pruning as needed and doing so can reinforce the structure and form.
Anyone living in an arid climate that desires the lush look of a weeping willow is sure to love this Shoestring Acacia tree.
