The shark tooth wattle is a lovely Western Australian shrub, with interesting triangular leaves and a wonderful flower display in spring. The flowers are yellow and ball shaped, and the shrub is pungent. It is dense growing and attractive in habit. Naturally grows on sandy soils, so needs good drainage, and likes a sunny spot. Drought tolerant. Variable in height, from half a metre to three metres tall. Tolerates light frost, and a great shrub for coastal gardens.
