The feathery foliage coupled with bright yellow spring flowers and a relatively compact habit make this a wattle well worth planting in your garden. This popular shrub grows upright, and can vary from low growing to quite tall. It has greyish green, finely divided heart-shaped foliage. The flowers are golden yellow and have a delicate fragrance of nectar, and densely clustered on branches. This shrub makes a wonderful feature plant or screen in the garden and will provide a stunning display.
