| Roemer Acacia|
Roemer Acacia grows in dry limestone or gravelly soils. In good, deep soil it grows to 15'-20', although on thin limestone hillsides in Edwards County it is a scraggly shrub of 3' to 6'. It is drought resistant and fairly cold hardy, as are Gregg and Wright Acacia. Its globe-shaped flowers are a good source of honey.
