Acacia melanoxylon better known as the Australian Blackwood tree is a really nice small evergreen tree considered tender but I first saw growing away quiet happily in the gardens at Wakehurst Kew. The trees where around 4-6 metres high and looked spectacular in the late winter light their willow like deep green leaves looking lush in the greyness of a winters day. In addition to the attractive foliage, during early spring clusters of pale creamy white fragrant flowers are produced.

I’d say Acacia melanoxylon is worth a try if you like something different, like all Acacia it can be pruned to size/shape and would be best planted in a sunny garden ideally in free draining slightly acid soil.
