Acacia dealbata (known also as silver wattle, blue wattle or mimosa) is a species of Acacia, native to southeastern Australia in New South Wales, Victoria, Tasmania, and the Australian Capital Territory and widely introduced in Mediterranean, warm temperate, and highland tropical landscapes, from Tasmania in 1820.
The shoots are noticeably angular in section and bear true, bipinnate, blue green leaves.
Harvested as a commercial crop the foliage is often included in cut flower arrangements as material is available all year round and it looks attractively fern-like.
The highly fragrant flowers, arranged in large terminal racemes, are borne in spring.
They are typical of the genus, being spherical clusters of conspicuous yellow stamens approximately 6mm across
In cool climates Acacia dealbata makes a wonderful specimen
