A fast-growing spreading shrub with many stems or small trees typically to a height of 3 to 5 m that produces right golden rods of cylindrical flowers occur in clusters 2 to 4cm long between January or April and September depending on conditions. Flowers are followed by papery pods. The pods are around 7 cm long and contain the seed.

Like most species of Acacia, it has phyllodes rather than true leaves.
The phyllodes are blue-green phyllodes that are slightly curved, broad and blunt 10 cm long.

Occurrs predominantly in the arid and semi-arid regions of central and northern Australia with pockets occurring in all states except Tasmania.

Prefers well-drained soil in an open sunny position, drought and frost tolerant. 

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.
