A very ornamental and fast growing wattle, with clear and bright golden yellow ball shaped flowers in spring and quite attractive when not in bloom. It can be a large shrub to small tree, with ferny soft foliage. It is best in free draining soils in a sunny spot, with regular moisture, and can grow a metre a year. Prune after flowering to shape to a shade tree or for a more bushy plant. Tolerates moderate frost and some shade.
