Mounding evergreen shrub growing to 2-3′ tall x 3-5′ wide. This unique and attractive low-growing form of River Wattle features soft drooping light green sometimes red tinged new foliage that eventually matures to a rich emerald-green.  Blooming can be sporadic with pale-yellow flowers produced throughout spring. A well-drained soil is critical for the success of this plant. While generally considered heat tolerant with relatively low water needs supplemental watering during the warmer months is preferred. Allow soil to dry between waterings. Deer resistant. Does well in containers. Prefers a full sun to partial shade exposure.
