Acacia pycnostachya is a small rare tree which grows on Bolivia Range in northern NSW. It flowers in October and has large fantastic rod flowers. This is fascinating. Some years ago I suggested planting this as a wattle that can feature at Bali commemorations because most of the other wattles are finished by that time. I sent out about 500 packets of seed to listeners of Australia All Over. The video is the first bit of feedback I've had from that campaign.

Acacia gold lace. prostrate form of Acacia cardiophylla and has fine fern-like grey-green foliage with masses of gold flowers in Winter. Will grow to 1.5m high by 1.5m wide and prefers a full sun to semi shade position in well-drained soil. May be shaped by pruning back long flowering branches and removing crowded and crossing stems in the centre of the standard. By cutting back to an outside bud one can encourage a broader umbrella shape with increased flowering in subsequent years.
