Acacia or Wattle Shrubs are in general subtropical to tropical woody shrubs to trees from a broad genus with numerous species. They have usually elegant feathered or crescent-shaped leaves and ornamental, dense clusters of pure white to bright yellow flower balls. Cut branches of many species are widely used in the floristry. In general wattles are easily cultivated as container plants in any rich, well drained soil in a sunny and frostfree spot throughout the year. In winter keep plants cooler at a minimum of some 10°C with reduced watering. Some species may lose several leaflets in winter, especially if they are kept rather cold, however they will resprout vigorously in spring. Plants which have become to large may be cut back in spring before the new growth.
Prior to sowing scarify seed (e.g. carefully scratch the seed coat with fine sandpaper) and soak them in luke warm water for some 48h. Sow flat at a minimum of some 20°C throughout the year in any leafy-sandy, well drained soil in a sunny spot. Keep seedlings in full sun.
