Acacia limelight is a new release improved form of the dwarf Acacia cognata.
Fast becoming a mainstay of Australian native gardens, popular with professional garden designers and landscapers, because of its near perfect weeping compact habit. Truly unique shrub for the garden. Highly recommended by the staff of Online plants.
Unlike some of the other new species, this one has proven to be disease resistant and capable of handling Australian gardening conditions. A small, weeping, rounded shrub growing to 1mt high and wide, It has fine, narrow lime/green foliage. Minimal flowers. Likes to be planted in a well-drained soil, not over fertilised as it can be sensitive to phosphorous rich plant food. Therefore make sure you only feed during spring with a native slow release fertiliser.
Acacia Limelight is valued for its vibrant foliage and low maintenance requirements. It is drought tolerant once established and can be pruned to maintain a desired size or shape. It is often used in garden beds, as a low hedge, or as a feature plant in a container. It also works well in coastal or Mediterranean-style gardens and is suitable for planting in full sun to part shade positions.
Limelight will thrive in full sun or part shade, excellent on a slope and beautiful to contrast with other native shrubs.
