This is a lovely wattle and our plant has a most unusual form. We noticed a wattle, weeping over a garden fence in Traralgon and collected some seed when passing. The plant we grew did indeed weep. With some careful staking we managed to persuade it to grow to about 4 feet (its parent was 12 ft tall). Since attaining its lofty maximum height of 4 ft, it quickly got back to ground level and has since that spread steadily across the ground (well outside the bed it is planted in). It now reaches about 4 metres from the trunk. My picture shows it spreading across the lawn, with the trunk not visible, and well outside the picture. I have a few seed, but whether it would come true to form from seed is anybody's guess. It flowers in the autumn and has a long flowering season, when not much else is in flower. I just learned that there is a named cultivar 'Parsons Cascade', which matches our plant, but ours was grown from a parent that although weeping was certainly not 'Parsons Cascade'.
