Silver Wattle

Acacia dealbata

£4.50

Silver Wattle or Mimosa is a loose growing, small open evergreen tree or large shrub. It has ferny grey green leaves and scented yellow pompom flowers,  in the winter and early spring. It is often used by florists for winter colour and scent.  Mimosa is also a Champagne cocktail – champagne and chilled citrus juice, with or without Drambuie. Good for breakfast(so I’m told!) Mimosa can be grown outside in the southwest and on the south coast, but still really needs shelter.
