Acacia saligna requires moderate watering; allowing the soil to dry out slightly before watering it again. The blooms are made of multiple, yellow to orange-colored flowers that bloom for an extended period. These flowers not only look beautiful, but also serve to attract many species of butterflies and hummingbirds to the garden.
In cold regions, where temperatures often drop below below freezing, Acacia saligna can be successfully grown in larger pots. Recommended potting soil for container-grown Golden Wattle should include a combination of peat moss, compost, and perlite or vermiculite. To ensure healthy growth, it is important to make sure that the soil is kept moist, but not soggy. During the winter months, it is recommended to position the pot in an area of the garden that will receive some protection from the elements. Also, remember to wrap the pot in bubble wrap or other insulating material to protect it from frost.

Maple is a widespread deciduous tree popular in eastern North America.
Many of its features, especially its leaves, are quite variable in form. Among these features it is best known for its brilliant deep scarlet foliage in autumn.

Elevation is also not a limiting factor in its range. Due to its attractive fall foliage and pleasing form, it is often used as a shade tree for landscapes. It is used commercially on a small scale for maple syrup production as well as for its medium to high quality lumber. It is the State Tree of Rhode Island. It is very cold hardy.
