The Silver wattle develops in an erect manner and, as the years go by, becomes a tree. These plants have an erect development; in the lower part they usually show a bare stem, while towards the top they widen to form the crown. The Silver wattle Is medium in size; in winter it assumes a yellow colouring. These are evergreen plants, which means they keep their leaves year round.
Exposure Silver wattle
The Silver wattle should be grown in a bright place, with direct sunlight. These plants don't agree with cold temperatures during this time of year. They can be grown outside.With a particularly windy climate we suggest securing young trees to long solid stakes, to avoid that the wind could bare young and not very developed roots; specimens which are only a few years old might fear intense cold and wind.
Watering Silver wattle
Water rarely, about once every 4-5 weeks with 1-2 buckets of water , keeping the soil dry for a few days before watering again; when wetting we suggest avoiding surpluses, however to wet the soil deep down. We advise watering the young specimens, or the recently sheltered ones; the adult specimens usually are satisfied with rain water.
Treatments Silver wattle
Generally during this time of year we suggest a pre-emptive treatment with wide range insecticide and with a systemic fungicide, to prevent the attack from part of the aphids and the development of fungus diseases, often favoured by a mild and damp climate.
Soil Silver wattle
Grow these plants in a dissolved and deep, but well drained soil.
