Acacia flexifolia is one of our top 10 favourite native plants. This delightful small wattle has fine phyllodes that clasp the branches and lemon yellow flowers. We regard this wattle as a herald of spring because it blooms in late winter. The flowers are so dense that the foliage is hidden by the mass of blooms. Acacia flexifolia is native to Central New South Wales, Victoria and Southern Queensland. This wattle is small enough to be accommodated in most gardens and would be an interesting addition to native cottage gardens and rockeries. Propagates readily from both seeds and cuttings. This is one of many small wattles with great horticultural potential. See the Small Acacia Project.
