Typically a bushy or spreading shrub to 2 metres in height, though occasionally larger. ‘Leaves’ (phyllodes) are short (usually < 4 centimetres), narrow and sticky. Globular, bright yellow flower heads are produced singly or in pairs at the base of each phyllode. Pods are short, woolly and often curved or twisted.
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 to November.
Generally confined to the western half of the region. Very common between Wagga Wagga and Ardlethan on the Wagga Wagga Rd and nearby roads.
