A spreading shrub occasionally reaching 4 metres in height, with distinctive triangular phyllodes. The bright yellow globular flowers are produced in clusters towards the ends of the branches and can produce a spectacular display. The mostly straight pods reach 10 cm in length and are generally flat. Before maturity they are blue-green in colour.
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.
Chiefly August to October, occasionally into November.
Willans Hill. Note that while Wagga Wagga is considered the southern limit of this species, it is not clear whether this population is natural or cultivated.
