An attractive species of Acacia with a rounded dense spreading habit 1-3 metres in height.
Fine leaf foliage, hence the common name "Fine-Leaf Wodjil" and masses of yellow ball shaped flowers that occur during the months of July to October.
Occurring naturally in the Wheat belt region of Western Australia from Geraldton to Esperance.
Will tolerate many different soils as long as it well drained and non-saline. Full sun to part shade although flowering will be more profuse in full sun.
Although seed can be sown most of the year in 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.
