A.viscidula.JPG (48165 bytes)Acacia viscidula: is a member of the Mimosaceae family and is known as the Sticky Wattle.
Acacia viscidula is a bushy, erect shrub reaching a height of about three metres. The phyllodes are very sticky (hence the common name), narrow, linear, leathery and curved with a small hooked point.
Flower-heads are globular, numerous and pale to deep yellow. The flowering period is from September to November.
Acacia viscidula is found in northern New South Wales and southern Queensland .
This hardy Wattle would be an ideal addition to a native shrubbery.
We have not planted any Sticky Wattles because this species has regenerated in large numbers in the Yallaroo bushland. The removal of domestic stock triggered a proliferation of Sticky Wattles, particularly on rocky slopes. Our plants flower in October.
Prune after flowering to maintain bushy growth and maximum flowering.
Propagate from seed and cuttings.
