The Q&A Archives: Acacia Cognota

Question: How do you prune Acacia cognota, and when?

Answer: Acacia cognota, or River Wattle, grows to 20' or 30' high with an equal spread. They do not generally need pruning, except to remove diseased or dead branches. They grow into graceful, weeping trees without any help at all. If you think yours needs to be pruned, early summer (after bloom has finished) is a good time to do it.
