A small tree or shrub with blue-green foliage and heads of ball-shaped, bright yellow flowers in spring.
An extremely hardy Acacia that will cope with extreme conditions and soil types other than waterlogged soils. Drought and frost tolerant.
A rare Acacia that is classified as rare in the wild with its wild range being less than 100kms with less than around 1,000 plants in the population.
Occurs naturally in the Bendethera to Bega districts on the south coast of NSW.
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, avoiding 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 that 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.
