A. acinea.JPG (45762 bytes)Acacia acinacea the Gold Dust Wattle is a small to medium shrub and occurs in South Australia, Victoria and NSW. Small phyllodes and masses of bright golden flowers in spring are characteristics of this attractive shrub. We have a number of specimens growing in the gardens at Yallaroo and they have proved to be hardy and free flowering. A useful plant for shrubberies and as a foreground specimen in hedgerows. As with most wattles prune after flowering. The Gold Dust Wattle propagates readily from seeds and cuttings.
