An adaptable hardy spreading shrub with large broad foliage that produces attractive twisted seed pods and bright yellow flowers which occur from May to September, being more prolific in the latter months.

The indigenous people used the sticky and unripe pods which when crushed and moistened were rubbed between the palms of their hands to produce a soap-like lather that removed dirt and cleaned their hands.

A widespread species of northern Australia that extends from the Pilbara and southern Kimberley region of Western Australia across the Great Sandy and Tanami Deserts of the Northern Territory into North-western Queensland.

Well suited to harsh climates, in more favourable conditions it can grow as a small tree to 9 metres.

Prefer a light to medium well-drained soil in an open sunny position. Drought tolerant but frost tender.

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.
