Mountain States Nursery
Previously sold as Acacia latifolia. Fast growing evergreen shrub/ small tree growing 20' tall and equally wide. Can be used successfully as a screen. Flower heads are narrow, tubular, bright yellow, appearing in winter and are fragrant. It is used for its fast growth and screening possibilitites rather than for its bloom. It does need room though and is not very well adapted for Phoenix. It is not long-lived perhaps 20 years.
