Details

Botanical Name: Acacia drummondii ssp. candolleana

A shorter, bushier variety of New South Wales' iconic floral emblem, the dwarf wattle produces large golden sprays of blooms from the tips of its branches. The trees last for around five to ten years and provide excellent low-maintenance screening or shrubbery.

We recommend the use of Wildflower Seed Starter Granules for improved germination rates and speed. These granules provide chemicals normally found in bushfire smoke that stimulate native seed germination.

We hope you enjoy these Wildflower seeds, just another great example of  seeds from Mr Fothergill’s!

Plant Height: 1m

How To Grow

Sow in warm areas anytime. In frost prone areas when danger of frost is over. Place seeds in a cup of hot water, leave overnight then drain and sow. Fill pots or seed tray with moist sandy soil, wet thoroughly and compress. Sow seeds thinly on the surface and cover very lightly with a thin layer of soil. It is beneficial to add Wildflower Seed Starter granules to soil surface. Keep moist. Cover with clear polythene – remove when germination commences. Place in warm shady position to germinate fully. Transplant to permanent position when about 5cm (2in) high being very careful to disturb the roots as little as possible. Water in well and then regularly until established, also occasionally in dry weather. Protect from slugs and snails when young.
