Acacia Limelight is famed for its lush, lime green foliage and compact shape, and is the perfect plant if you want to add some wow factor to your garden. It's all about the foliage with this particular plant. This Australian native will reward you with a dense display of soft, swaying vegetation all year round. It's at home in any style of garden, whether you want a manageable ground cover, something to plant along your fence line or a focal piece to fill that empty spot in your backyard.
Acacia Limelight is versatile, they're happy in a pot on your balcony or in a courtyard and do equally well planted directly into a garden bed. It won't take up too much space either, only spreading up to a metre across and high. This plant does like to relish in the light, so make sure it's positioned in an open spot with full sun to part shade. Like many Australian natives, the Limelight prefers well-drained soils. These weeping wonders will tolerate light frost but if your garden experiences ice on a regular basis, plant it in area where it's protected from the elements. They can also be prone to root rot so if you live in a region where humidity is high it's a good idea to pop it in a position where it can enjoy the breeze.
