Acacia acinacea

A screening shrub for low screening and winter colour. A native of south-eastern Australia, this tough and durable shrub can grow up to 2m in height. It produces masses of globular, yellow flowers during winter-spring. Light pruning can further promote a dense, suckering habit if desired. Acacias are a food source and nesting site for birds.
