Acacia leucoclada subsp argentifolia is a moderate to fast growing, frost tolerant species. Moderately drought tolerant, this species responds well to water during dry periods. It needs well drained soils and is intolerant of poor drainage. It grows best in acidic soil types and prefers clay loams to sandy clay loams. It is very useful as a foliage plant for subtropical and warm temperate regions. This plant grows best in full sun.
An excellent windbreak for farms and is also good for fence posts and as shade for stock. The pollen has value for apiculture and the foliage and fruits have potential for use in floriculture. In the urban garden it is suitable as an ornamental plant or for use as a screen or informal hedge. The wood is used in pulpwood (wood chips for paper pulp), medium density fibreboard and plywood.
A useful plant in erosion control as it spreads by root suckers and has the potential to develop into small clumps. It is excellent for both clayey sites and sandy sites. The suckering qualities of this plant may lead it to outcompete other nearby plants, resulting in a high potential to become a weed.
