A long-lived Acacia that has been recorded as over 100 years old produces a profusion of golden rod-shaped flowers during winter and spring. 
This Acacia was one of the most valuable plants for the local Aboriginals as well as the early settlers. 

Traditional uses by the indigenous people include grinding the seed to make a flour or edible paste when moistened.
The sweet exudation, produced by the plant was either sucked straight from the tree or dissolved in water to make a refreshing drink that was referred to by the early settlers as Bush Lollies.

The hardwood of the  Wattle was used in Boomerangs and digging tools when polished it turns a dark red/brown and is ideal in woodturning.

Occurring in all states except Victoria.

Well adapted to low levels of soil nutrients and suited to and wide range of free-draining soils and conditions but not recommended for heavy clay soils. Ideal for areas of hot summers and cool winters. Drought tolerant & frost resistant. Flowers best in full sun.

Please Note: Although many of the traditional Bush Food and Medicine plants are now commercially produced in various forms we recommend you research these before using them as any form of food or medicine. Some parts of the plant may not be edible or some may need to be prepared before they are safe to eat or use in any way. We do our best to describe their traditional & modern uses. It is the purchaser's responsibility to ensure they are fit for their intended use.

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.
