Acacia ‘Blackwood’ Wattle


Acacia melanoxylon 

Acacia ‘Blackwood’ is an iconic Australian tree famous for its timber, which has been extensively used for quality specialist furniture since European settlement.

Growing into a large shade tree, the Blackwood’s dense foliage makes it an ideal choice for a screen or windbreak with its pale yellow cream flowers blooming in winter and spring. It is cold and frost tolerant with low flammability and high tolerance to poor soils and drought. Plant with Acacia Lightwood, which flowers in summer, for year-round interest.
