Acacia decora is a many branched, spreading shrub that may reach a height of three metres. The phyllodes are flat, up to 50 millimetres long and 7 millimetres wide. They may be straight, curved or sickle-shaped and bluish-green in colour.

Golden-yellow, globular flower heads cover plants in spring. Prune after flowering to keep plants bushy and flowering profusely.

Acacia decora would make a colourful addition to a native hedgerow or shrubbery.

This is a widely distributed Wattle whose range extends from northern Queensland through central New South Wales to northern Victoria.

Acacia decora is common in the Warrumbungle National Park and the Pilliga Scrub in central New South Wales.

Propagate from seed or cuttings.
