The Cedar Wattle is one of the largest trees among the Australian Acacias, growing up to 20 metres. It grows in hilly country in coastal New South Wales, especially in the Blue Mountains in tall open forest. It has dark green bipinnate leaves and produces masses of pale yellow flowers in the summer. I have planted two trees, grown from seed, in my garden and both are growing well. One flowered for the first time last year, when about 4 metres tall.
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.
