Acacia farnesiana Sweet Sierra™ (Podless Sweet Acacia)

Acacia farnesiana Sweet Sierra
Podless Sweet Acacia

This extremely tough tree will grow in almost any situation, from hot parking lots to turf areas. Its moderate size, fast growth rate, and attractive vase-shaped form make it a popular choice for desert landscapes. Masses of fragrant yellow puffball flowers are produced in the spring that perfume the garden. This tree is notorious for being quite messy due to the heavy crop of plump brown seed pods. However this cultivar is virtually free of pods which greatly reduces the maintenance.
