Acacia cognata
'Cousin Itt'

Acacia cognata Cousin Itt

Destined to be this year’s “Itt” plant here at the nursery, this unique, dwarf & gorgeous DROUGHT TOLERANT Australian native draws countless comments when visitors see it growing here in our demo gardens. Like something out of a fantasy Japanese garden, very narrow, bamboo-like weeping creates a stunning, very dense, spreading, emerald green mound to 2’ tall & up to 4-6’ across. Use it as an easy evergreen focal plant in any well-drained garden. Superb for edging, draping over a wall, or even to create a fanciful front lawn replacement! Fab in a large container, too. Do water occasionally in Summer for best appearance. Deer resistant! Hardy to 15 degrees F.
