Project Description

Acacia baileyana ‘Purpurea’ is a stunning small evergreen tree. The emerging feathery foliage is a dramatic lavender to purple shade that turns blue gray with age. Blessed with a naturally graceful umbrella shape, this Australian native will grow rapidly to approximately 20-30 feet with a 20-40 foot spread. It will likely reach full height in 3 years. This makes its typical life span of 20-30 years more palatable. It is blessedly low-maintenance, seldom affected by drought, disease, wind or frost once mature.
