Silver Wattle

Silver wattle (also, mimosa) is an evergreen tree with fern-like, silvery-green divided leaves. Orange buds, followed by fragrant clusters of flowers, will add color and scent from winter through spring. Silver wattle is susceptible to frost, so plant it in a sheltered site in full sun with well-drained soil. Expect the silver wattle to grow to 50-100 feet tall, and 20-30 feet wide.
