Cascade Acacia Waterfall by a creek bed, drift & swirl between huge boulders, and drape itself over timber walls. Nothing looks more dramatic than a pair of standard Waterfall® gracing an entrance. It’s the perfect choice for small landscapes needing a soft and elegant focus, and it’s a crowd-stopper in the bigger scene. Cool temperate to sub tropical climates and a well-drained soil, and full sun or light shade will suit it; light to moderate frost is tolerated, and a coastal spot is fine, with a bit of protection from salty gales. Prune the ends lightly just to keep them clean and tidy.
