Vernacular names
English: Weeping Boree, Hairy Wattle

Acacia vestita, with common names weeping boree, weeping acacia, and hairy wattle, is a shrub and small tree native to New South Wales, Australia.[1][2]

Acacia vestita grows to about 3 metres (9.8 ft) tall and 3m in diameter. It flowers from about August to October. It can be propagated by seed, which may be first soaked in hot water to permeate the hard seed coating before planting.[3]

Acacia vestita is grown in the horticulture industry as a small multi-trunk tree for gardens, and is popular in California for drought tolerant landscaping.
