Acacia cognata is a plant species native to Australia. It is commonly known as "narrow-leaved bower wattle" or "river wattle" and belongs to the family Fabaceae. Acacia cognata is a small to medium-sized evergreen tree that typically grows to a height of 3-6 meters, although there are also dwarf cultivars available that are much smaller. It has narrow, lance-shaped leaves that are dark green and glossy, and produces small, yellow, fluffy flowers in spring.

Acacia cognata is popular as an ornamental plant because of its attractive foliage and weeping habit, and is commonly used in landscaping as a low hedge, in mass plantings, or as a specimen plant. It prefers well-drained soil and a sunny position, but can also tolerate some shade. It is a low-maintenance plant that is drought-tolerant once established.
