Sweet Acacia Shrubs

Sweet Acacia, Acacia farnesiana, is a semi-deciduous shrub or small tree, very heat and drought tolerant and great for xeriscape gardens in the desert Southwest.

The plant can grow 15 to 30 feet in height, but is usually kept much smaller.

A fast grower that requires full sun and low water usage, once established.

Cold hardy plant, recommended to only 15 degrees F, but faired well when February temps were below zero for a few days.

Flowers appear in the spring and summer months, small yellow balls followed by two and a half inch long seed pods.

Sweet Acacia is a great shrub for the desert Southwest landscape!
