Acacia redolens is a low growing and wide spreading ground cover.

Although Acacia redolens is quite drought resistant, it also tolerates periodic flooding, and a number of landscape architects have used it successfully in retention basins. This groundcover acacia has proven its value time and again as a first class slope coverage for hot dry banks.

This plant requires regular irrigation during the hot summer months.
