Acacia Saligna | Drought Tolerant Trees
The Acacia Saligna (Acacia saligna), also known as the ‘Blue Leaf Wattle’, is an extremely fast-growing, sun-loving tree that flourishes in the lower deserts. The canopy provides shade to an area that’s usually a little wider than the trees height. Look for a gorgeous yellow flower display during Spring. The Acacia Saligna is a great, drought tolerant choice, perfect for San Diego’s drought conditions and increasing water restrictions.
