Acacia longifoliais – Sydney golden wattle
Acacia longifolia is an attractive, large and bushy, fast-growing evergreen shrub. It is an excellent coastal tree with a useful life of 5-8 years and copes well with wind and pollution.
It prefers habitats such as coastal sand dunes, headlands, and adjacent alluvial flats. Can be planted around slow growing shrubs to offer protection during the establishment phase.
Uses: Well suited for low maintenance areas such as road batters, for hydro-seeding work on banks where it will provide soil stabilisation and works well as a hedge plant or for screening.
