I am always on the look out for small “feature trees”, something that can be planted in front of a hedge and still be walked under. Or to be placed in a garden bed and have enough space to have some underplanting beneath the canopy. Acacia cardiophylla does this perfectly. It is also quick growing (as its an Acacia) and has the most prolific flowering show of highly perfumed deep yellow flower spikes. It doesn’t get too tall or too wide and has beautiful soft feathery foliage that can form a great screen. It grows from 2 to 4 metres, perfect!
