Acacia adunca - Wallangarra Wattle - 30 seeds

Acacia adunca, commonly known as Wallangarra Wattle can grow as a small tree, 6m high by 3m across, or a large, spreading shrub, the latter being promoted under cultivation by regular pruning immediately following flowering.  It is found on the tablelands of southern Queensland and northern New South Wales, this region has predominantly granite soils and a high annual rainfall and Winter frosts are common.
The 'leaves' (in fact phyllodes) are dark green and lustrous and in warm weather may feel oily to touch, they are pendulous, and 60 - 100mm long
The flowers are bright yellow spheres borne in simple racemes about 30mm long arising near and at the ends of branchlets, their weight causes the outer branches to become pendulous during flowering.  Flowering is prolonged and prolific, extending from the end of July through winter to early October, a time of year when colour in the garden is most welcome.  An added bonus is the pleasantly sweet fragrance of the flower.
This Acacia appears to be less prone to borer attack and scale insects than other members of the genus and has strong timber, is not easily damaged in high winds, and should be more widely cultivated.
Seed can be harvested during the Summer and sown in individual containers the following Spring. 
Before sowing, however, the seed should be treated to break down the hard coat - boiling water may be poured over the seed and left to soak for several hours or an alternative form of treatment is to scarify the seed. Check out our website for more information.
A position in full sun with ample water and good drainage will suit the plant best, it is also frost hardy to 
This is an outstanding species which may be used as a feature plant in a sunny situation.
