Profuse golden-yellow flowers on a low-growing shrub with interesting spoon-shaped foliage are the key features of this spectacular wattle. Use it as a feature groundcover to spill over walls and along borders or in a large pot so it can be moved to where you can enjoy the flowers. Give it a light trim after flowering.
