A hardy spreading low dense shrub with attractive small rounded pyhllodes (leaves), flowers, and seed pods. Golden yellow clusters of ball-shaped flowers occur during the months of October to May in its native range.
Formally known as Acacia translucens.
Occurring naturally in the Eremaean Province and Northern Province of Western Australia extending into the Northern Territory.
Adaptable to most soils in an open sunny position.
Although seed can be sown most of the year in many parts of Australia seed is generally best sown in spring or autumn, 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.
