Acacia Riverine is a species of Acacia that is native to Australia. The plant has a long history of use by Indigenous Australians, who have used it for medicinal and practical purposes for thousands of years. The plant’s wood was used to make tools and weapons and the bark was used to make string and rope.
Acacia riverine was first introduced to Europe by botanists and collectors in the late 19th century as an ornamental plant. It was prized for its striking silver-blue foliage and its tolerance for a wide range of conditions. It was initially grown in botanic gardens and arboretums, but later it was also introduced to private gardens and public parks.
In recent years, Acacia riverine has become a popular choice for landscaping, particularly in water-sensitive areas, due to its drought-tolerance, hardiness and its attractive silver-blue foliage.
