A very attractive shrub or small tree with attractive minni-ritchi bark with arching silvery coloured branchlets with fine silky hairs. Bright yellow cylindrical flowers occur on short stalks in the phyllode (leaf) axils during spring. Each phyllode (leaves) is 8 -20 cm long.
The ideal variety of Acacia for use as a garden specimen and general landscaping.
Prefers light well-drained soil in a sunny position, drought-resistant, and tolerant to light frosts.
Occurs naturally in the Eremaean Province and South-West Province of Western Australia.
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 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.
