Acacia deanei: is known as Deane’s Wattle and was discovered by and named after Henry Deane. Acacia deanei will grow into a tall, upright shrub or small tree with light green bipinnate of “ferny” foliage. The species has pale yellow, globular flowers that appear throughout the year. Both foliage and flowers are features of this attractive wattle. Because of the long flowering period, Deane’s Wattle will bring that spring time feeling to the garden throughout the year.
We are sentimentally attached to Acacia deanei because it grew in large numbers around our home when we live and worked in Warrumbungle National Park many years ago.
Deane’s Wattle could be cultivated as a stand-alone specimen plant, in native hedgerows and windbreaks.
There are two sub-species. Botanically there are differences but our feeling is that horticulturally they are identical.
Acacia deanei is found throughout the Slopes, Plains and Southern Tablelands of NSW as well as Queensland and Victoria.
We have a number of specimens growing at Yallaroo. Some are over ten years old and are still surviving, thriving and blooming bounteously.
Propagate from seeds.
