Acacia craspedocarpa – Broad-leaved Mulga

This Acacia would make a wonderful addition to the garden as it is quite adaptable and decorative, particularly the seed pods. Flowers are a vibrant yellow colour. A great plant for semi-arid gardens, it is tolerant of both frost and drought once established, and is also suitable for container planting. It can grow to a small tree, but generally grows to a medium or large shrub.
