Fast-growing, Acacia baileyana, also known as Fernleaf acacia and Cootamundra Wattle, is a large, graceful evergreen shrub or small tree adorned with a wide-spreading canopy and weeping branches clothed in feathery, finely cut, blue-gray leaves. The foliage remains appealing all year round. In late winter to early spring, clouds of bright golden-yellow, small, rounded flowers held in axillary racemes cover the branches and create a striking floral display. Cootamundra Wattle makes a dramatic statement in the garden. A great specimen plant in the garden, container and Bonsai. Zones 8-10.
