Acacia caffra (=Senegalia caffra) is a very hardy, deciduous, drought resistant, graceful tree with feathery foliage that gives the tree a weeping shape.
Fragrant, creamy-white flower spikes are borne from September to November along with the delicate new leaves making this tree a really beautiful sight.
The flowers buzz with the insect life around them. Tolerates harsh conditions - cold and drought. It has a few scattered small hook thorns and fissured, flaking bark which attract Woodpeckers.
Once planted out it quickly develops into a beautiful tree that can be used as a single specimen or to create an attractive avenue and is an essential part of a bushclump and wildlife garden.
Attracts birds and insects to the garden.
