Acacia cognata fettuccine is an excellent feature plant with foliage that has a natural weeping habit and twisted undulating leaf margins.
It is low-growing to around 1m in height. Over time, it will spread to 1m across, sometimes more.
Being a low-maintenance plant and growing well in full sun to part shade, it is used by landscapers for its year-round foliage display.
It will flower, although the small yellow flowers are rather insignificant.
Acacia cognata fettuccine grows well in most climates, although it does not cope well in humid areas.
A well-drained soil is best; however, clay or salt-affected soils are not suitable.
In reasonably good soils, fertiliser is not required. A native plant, low phosphate fertiliser can be used if required.
Water over the first summer. After this, it is relatively drought tolerant.
You should have no problems with this easy-care plant if you provide good drainage.
