This is a small shrub with prickly phyllodes, making it useful as a barrier or hedge to deter humans and animals. This protective environment can also provide shelter for small birds.
Flowering through autumn and winter to spring, Acacia ulicifolia can give some extra colour in the garden through this period with its globular pale yellow blooms.
Light shade is ideal, and a slightly moist root area, although it still needs a well drained soil.
Do not plant where the prickly foliage may cause damage.

WHERE TO GET YOUR PLANT
Once you have found the plant that looks right for you, the next step is where to buy it.
Most nurseries stock a good range of plants, but due to space and supplies, they may not always have the plant that you are searching for in stock. If they don’t, they may be able to order it in for you if you request it.
Specialist nurseries are also able to give great advice, and if they don’t have the plant you have planned on, they can often suggest alternatives that will also work well for you.
