West Wyalong Wattle is an Acacia from inland New South Wales in Australia, where in grows on open plains and on stream banks. It is a popular species in cultivation, having delicate ferny foliage and masses of bright golden yellow flowers in spring. The name cardiophylla, does not mean that the leaves as a whole are heart-shaped, but the tiny secondary pinnae of the bipinnate leaves. I planted one some 10 or more years back and it is now some 3 metres tall and continues to flower beautifully every year. Like most Australian wattles, it is easy to grow from seed, provided the seed is first treated by pouring boiling water on it to crack the hard outer coat.
