Occurring in the drier coastal woodlands of eastern and southern Australia. Blackish bark finely ridged; green ferny leaves dark green on top and paler and downy underneath. Pale yellow flower borne in spring to early summer.
Ideal Acacia for subtropical and warm temperate regions. Moderately frost and drought tolerant.
Place the seed in a container and pour in just boiled water and allow to soak and cool overnight.
The swollen seed can then be sown, re-treat seeds that have not swollen.
Acacia seeds germinate readily, however they do have a hard outer coating which is impervious to water and generally germination will not occur unless the seed is scarified by abrading or pre-treated with boiling water first.
