Low growing erect or sometimes spreading grass like Acaia with flatten phyllodes leaves and small golden yellow flower balls occurring from June to October. Will tolerate many different soils as long as it well drained. Full sun to part shade although flowering will be more profuse in full sun. 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. 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. Place the seed in a container and pour in just boiled water and allow to soak overnight.
