Also known as maiden’s wattle, acacia maidenii is one of the more popular acacia species although it is becoming increasingly scarce in the wild. Native to Austrailia, this perennial evergreen can be found growing at the edges of rainforests. Reaching 20-50 feet, maidenii forms a dense canopy of phyllodes with golden blooms. This fast-growing tree is hardy to about 20 degrees Fahrenheit and enjoys full sun to partial shade. A well-draining soil is required. In its first years, the soil should be kept fairly moist. However, acacia maidenii is somewhat drought-tolerant with age. Our current stock is grown from our seeds although a plant grown from cuttings of these plants may be given when seed-grown plants are not available.
Growing Information: Gradually acclimate your plants to a location in full sun or place under artificial lighting indoors. Soil should be fertile, well-draining and fertilized occasionally.

**Buyer is responsible for frozen plants. USPS is heated, so the plant will be fine unless you leave it at your door too long. But if you are in a cold area and cannot get the plant right away, signature confirmation can be added to the shipping cost. They will hold the plant until you pick it up.
