AUSTRALIAN GOLDEN WATTLE

 

Australian Wattle

 

Acacia pycnantha, Golden Wattle, is a shrub or small tree about 4 to 8 metres tall.

Golden Wattle occurs in the understorey of open forest or woodland and in open scrub formations in South Australia, Victoria, New South Wales and the Australian Capital Territory, in temperate regions with mean annual rainfall of 350 mm to 1000 mm. It regenerates freely after fires, which usually kill the parent plants but stimulate the germination of seeds stored in the soil if rain follows soon after.

 The brilliant yellow, fragrant flowers of Golden Wattle make it a popular garden plant.
