A multi-stemmed shrub that produces elongated flowers between April to August, depending on the location.  

It typically grows to a height of 2 to 5 metres with a spreading habit, but it is occasionally found as a conical tree with a height of 4 to 7 metres and crooked stems and branches. Like most species of Acacia, it has phyllodes rather than true leaves. The green to grey green phyllodes have a blueish-coloured tinge and are curved or arched.

The unusual phyllodes have a length of 4 to 9 cm and a diameter of 0.8 to 1.1 mm with many obscure longitudinal nerves.

 Drought and frost  tolerant. Hardy species are suitable for arid and semi-arid conditions.

Occurs naturally in the Mid West, Pilbara and the Little Sandy Desert regions of Western Australia with smaller populations close to the border with South Australia.

For best results, sow the seeds in spring or early summer. Sowings in autumn and winter may result in slow germination, weaker seedlings, or germination failure.

  1.  soak in water for 24-48 hours.
  2. Next, soak seeds in near boiling water overnight to help soften the tough exterior and improve germination.
  3. Sow the seeds to a depth equal to the seed's width.

Germination: Typically occurs within two weeks.

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 germinate, keep them moist but not too wet.
  • These growth notes are provided as guidance only and do not guarantee successful germination.
  • The customer should do their due diligence that they are suited to their region.
