Acacia cognata 'Limelight'

We have successfully grown the shrub form of ‘Limelight’ in Sydney for ten years – through drought and flooding rains! – and love its waterfall of luminous lime leaves. As a shrub it grows into a 1m x 1m bun – offering a formal touch to native gardens. Grafted specimens grow to 1.5m on a 1.2m high trunk and will eventually weep to the ground to create a perfect hideaway for children to make magic under. The standards also look good grown either side of a gate or pathway to give height and a sense of arrival. Limelight loves full or part sun.
