MEDIUM WATER REQUIREMENTS
This species is one of the few Vachellia’s suited to a cold highveld garden. Formerly Acacia robusta subsp. robusta, the species has a slightly flattened crown when mature, and most cases grow to between 5-8m in height, making it suitable for small-medium sized gardens. The flowers are creamy-white and like most flowering bushveld species attract a host of insects, and in turn insectivorous birds. The tree bares straight, white thorns.
