A small rounded shrub with a red stem with a handsome crown and large and showy flowers of light to deep yellow balls appearing in clusters from winter to summer.
The phyllodes (leaves) are 2-5 cm long and 5-12 mm wide, usually with thickened yellowish margins.
Occurs naturally throughout the temperate regions of Australia and commonly found in heaths on poor soils derived from sandstone.
Adaptable to most soils and conditions. It is drought and frost resistant.
Although seed can be sown most of the year in 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 which 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.
