Acacia pendula (Weeping Myall) is a graceful small tree 15 to 30 feet tall from Australian with a weeping habit. This under utilized tree, is long-lived, drought and frost tolerant and can be used as a street tree or in many other landscape locations. A. pendula can be used in a wide range of soils in arid landscapes. Its silver-grey foliage is a great complement to our southwestern native habitat. A heavy bloom occurs in the spring and winter of pale yellow ball flowers in racemes that brightens the landscape.  This tree is known to flower irregularly other times of the year. A. pendula is a versatile tree specie surviving drought conditions and areas that periodically flood such as retention basins. It is frost tolerant and experienced no damage at 15 degree F. (below 25 degree F. for 11 hours) in our nursery. In its broad Australian native distribution it can tolerate a wide range of soil conditions ranging from saline to acidic or alkaline. The trees hard, close grain, dark color and heavy weight wood make for an excellent windbreak and has been used to make boomerangs for Aboriginal hunters. The oil from fresh cuts omit a pleasant rich violet fragrance that women placed in there garment drawers. The trees heartwood color of deep chocolate brown to dark toffee orange has drawn the interest of fine wood working craftsman for the manufacturing of furniture. Little is known about its growth rate under nursery and landscape settings or the growth characteristics of seed collected from different regions. Seed selected for propagation exhibit diverse growth habits. No known successful method for clonal propagation has been published.
