Spreading, rounded, often multi-stemmed shrub to 3 metres in height. The ferny leaves consist of pairs of hairy, oval-shaped pinnae which together create a rough heart shape, hence the alternative common name Ƭheart-leaf wattleƮ. A cluster of globular, golden flowers is produced from the base of each leaf. These are followed by long (to 10 or more centimetres), hairy, slightly curved pods.
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.
