Acacia howittii 'Green Wave'
Genus Species: Acacia howittii
Common / Product Name: Green Wave
POSITION: Grows best in full sun to part shade in clay soils. Ideal for most locations and tolerates short periods of dry.
CARE: This plant requires very little maintenance, as its textural compact habit naturally forms a good shape requiring little or no pruning. Green Wave will benefit from an annual application of a low phosphorus slow release fertiliser and mulching around the base of the plant will help conserve moisture
USES: Green Wave is an excellent compact, low growing shrub suitable for areas where good visibility is necessary. The pendulous habit of this plant makes it a useful foreground plant in low level plantings. This plant is very adapted to clay cuts where plantings will help to retain soil on the slop.
