Plant details

This is one of the hardiest species of wattle and grows into a rounded, billowy shrub. It is used in Australia and America as a road screening tree to block out dust and headlights. Grown for its cyclindrical clusters of golden-yellow flowers in spring, it makes an excellent pot plant, but it can be short lived.
