Acacia drummondii ssp. candolleana - dwarf wattle

DESCRIPTION: Compact growing wattle suited to small spaces, rockeries and native gardens. Flowers with large sprays of golden-yellow bird attracting flowers spring and summer.
PLANTING: Sow seeds year-round in most locations avoiding extreme heat and cold. Natives can require a little more care than the average flowering perennial, but are well worth the effort. Start by soaking seeds in a cup of hot water leaving to soak overnight. Sprinkle seeds evenly, gently pat down, water and keep moist. A sprinkle of Mr Fothergill's seed starter granules will help move things along. Cover trays with a layer of clear plastic to help retain moisture, remove plastic once seedlings begin to emerge and place in a warm shady spot. Transfer seedlings at approximately 5cm high. For best flowering, plant in a full sun location. Prefers free draining-sandy soil. 
CARE: Water seedlings regularly until established and infrequently as the plants mature. Tolerates light frost once established. Mulch plants to retain moisture in the soil and fertilise using a native slow release fertiliser.
