Size: Bailey acacias grow 20 to 30 feet high and spread from 20 to 40 feet.
Foliage: Bailey acacia leaves are steely blue-gray in color, compound, finely divided, with leaflets only 1/4 inch long.
Flowers & Fruit: Acacia flowers are yellow and fragrant. Though individually rather small, resembling powder-puffs under 1/8 inch in diameter, they're carried in dense, feathery clusters or sprays on the ends of the branches, and bloom from January to March. The fruits resemble dry, twisted pea-pods.
