The Duck Headed Wattle is a shrub or tree that typically grows to a height of 1 to 4 meters, but can be as high as 7 meters. It blooms from April to June and produces yellow flowers.

The plant has corky, deeply furrowed bark and green to grey-green to blue-green leathery textured phyllodes which have unequal ends resembling a duck's head shape. The phyllodes are usually 4 to 9 cm in length and 2 to 6 cm wide. 

This species of Acacia occurs naturally in the arid areas of northwestern Australia, including Dampierland, Gibson Desert, and the Great Sandy Desert. The range of the plant extends from the northern boundary of the Pilbara region northwards to around Broome in the northwest to around Kumpupintil Lake and Lake Gregory in the east.
It occurs on red soil and is sometimes found on heavier, sometimes saline, soils.

Pre-treatment: Hot Water
Place the seed in a container, pour in just boiled water, and allow to soak overnight.
The swollen seed can then be sown, and seeds that have not swollen can be re-treated.
Sow seed 3-5mm and keep moist. Germination should occur in 10-21 days @ 18-22C.

*Please note:

  • Please do not be too hasty to discard seeds that do not germinate; seeds will often lay dormant until the conditions are similar to their natural germination requirements.
  • As with all seeds, they must have adequate water to keep them moist but not too wet.
  • These growth notes are provided as guidance only and do not guarantee successful germination.
