Low growing erect or sometimes spreading grass like Acaia with flatten phyllodes (leaves) and small golden yellow flower balls occurring from June to October.
Occurring naturally in the South West Province of Western Australia.
Will tolerate many different soils as long as it well drained. Full sun to part shade although flowering will be more profuse in full sun.
Although seed can be sown most of the year in many parts of Australia seed is generally best sown in spring or autumn in temperate climates, avoid the coldest and hottest months of the year. The optimum germination temperature for germination is around 18-22°C.
Acacia seeds germinate readily, however they do have a hard outer coating which is impervious to water and generally germination will normally not occur unless the seed is scarified by abrading or pre-treated with boiling water first.
General note: Seeds of many natives are dormant and require specific conditions or pre-treatment for germination.
Do not be too hasty to discard seed that does not germinate, seeds will often lay dormant until the conditions are similar to their natural requirements for germination to occur. Containers put to one side will often surprise long after they were discarded.
