Acacia baileyana ‘Purpurea Songlines’


Eventual Plant Size


Acacia baileyana ‘Purpurea Songlines’ is another beautiful mimosa native to New South Wales in Australia. It produces very beautiful ferny like leaves which when young are a deep purple colour fading to silver grey as they mature. During late winter masses of fluffy bright yellow flowers are produced which have a strong sweet marzipan (in my opinion !) like fragrance. Acacia baileyana ‘Purpurea Songlines’ makes a medium sized busy shrub and can easliy be pruned to shape. The only downside is that it requires a warm spot in the garden and although tolerant of frosts needs to be in a milder location. But because it is fast growing and relatively inexpensive we thoroughly recommend trying this plant. It can also happily be grown in a container and brought into a cool glasshouse or conservatory for the winter. Indeed it makes a brilliant year round conservatory plant filling the air with it’s amazing fragance in late winter.
