Acacia Pravissima

  • Acacia Pravissima


A surprising singularity

Mimosa trees have been captivating the imagination of nature lovers for centuries with their spectacular blooms and delicate foliage. Mimosa is the emblem of the Estérel hills in the Var area, French Riviera-Côte d’Azur, and you will come across it throughout your strolls in Nos Coins de Paradis ® (Our Corners of Paradise). Also a member of this enchanting botanical family, the Acacia pravissima, or Ovens wattle, features singular, triangular leaves that differentiate it from the rest of this well-loved plant family here at our four-star campsite Les Jardins de La Pascalinette ® in La Londe-les-Maures.

Contrary to its cousins, which typically sport feather or fern-shaped leaves, Ovens wattle features triangular leaves that add an intriguing visual dimension to its silhouette.

Native to Australia, this variety is valued for its resilience and ability to thrive in all types of environments. Its triangular leaves lend it a unique aesthetic and add a striking contrast to every garden or landscape.

Other mimosa varieties at the campsite

In addition to the Acacia pravissima, the large mimosa family features a multitude of varieties, each with their own special characteristics. The best known include Acacia longifolia, also referred to as long-leaved wattle, appreciated for its blooms shaped like long, fluffy caterpillars, Acacia baileyana, or Cootamundra wattle, famed for its blue-green leaves and luminous yellow flowers and Acacia retinodes, or ever-blooming wattle, which, as its name suggests, blooms several times a year.

Offering a plethora of different colours, shapes and sizes, these various mimosa varieties allow our holidaymakers and lovers of nature camping to enjoy a magnificently varied outdoor display.

Although every variety of mimosa offers its own contribution to the campsite’s floral beauty, the Acacia pravissima’s unique foliage adds a genuine touch of originality to our exceptional vegetation.
