    A small weeping evergreen tree with curious, scale-like, glaucous triangular leaves and pale, lemon-yellow flowers in late winter to early spring. Also known as the wedged-leaf wattle, a sunny, sheltered site, with the protection of a house or garden wall would be perfect for this woody perennial. Alternatively, it could be grown in a large pot and kept in a conservatory.

  • Garden care: Lightly prune after flowering has finished, cutting back shoots that spoil the shape of the tree. In the garden, incorporate lots of well-rotted garden compost into the planting hole and stake firmly. To grow in a pot, plant in a loam-based potting compost and keep in a sunny spot.
