Typically a straggly shrub reaching 2 metres in height. The ‘leaves’ (phyllodes) are variable in shape but are generally rounded oblongs or ovals (some forms may have linear phyllodes). The golden-yellow, globular flower heads are produced singly or in pairs on stalks from the phyllode bases. These are followed by distinctive spiral-shaped or twisted pods which become brown and papery at maturity.
Seed is protected by a hard seed coat which must be broken (either by nicking, abrading, or soaking briefly in near-boiling water) before it will germinate. Germinates readily after treatment. May also grow from cuttings.
Late winter and spring.
