Sorry guys/gals. I just wrote an extensive piece re: A. podalyriifolia, BUT lost it somewhere in posting. [too much info. to re-post!!]. Grrrrr !!
So, to compromise - I live in Gladstone, Queensland, Australia, where Acacia podalyriifolia is a native.

I have [easily!] propagated the seeds [any many other Aus. plants]; grown the seedlings; and planted in the field. If you want any Acacia info, please contact me: at Dave's site. My username is: Callistemon
