Re: Bulls horn acacia

The largest one I've seen was about 15 feet, Melody, but I really have no idea. I bought one with a central leader with the notion of limbing it up as it grew, eventually making a small tree [rather than a shrub]. I'm going to plant it in a large terra cotta pot and see how long I can keep it there. I don't know how fast/slow it grows here, either.

Subject: [CHAT] Bulls horn acacia

Here's a link to a picture of my newly acquired bulls-horn acacia
<br>[Acacia sphaerocephala]. It shows the horns a bit more distinctly
than <br>the photo at the other site did. They look like they ought to
be part <br>of some Chinese ivory
of the architects at work told me that when he landscaped one of <br>the
estates on St. Armand's Key a couple of years ago, he went to great
<br>lengths to save a full grown bulls-horn--pruned it out, limbed it
up, <br>planted an understory to call attention to it, and so on. He
said the <br>last time he went back to the house, he learned the owner
had had her <br>maintenance folks cut it down and haul it
away.<br><br>Oh well, not a plant for everyone, I guess.<br><br>Island
