This is a small shrub with prickly phyllodes, making it useful as a barrier or hedge to deter humans and animals. This protective environment can also provide shelter for small birds.
Flowering through autumn and winter to spring, Acacia ulicifolia can give some extra colour in the garden through this period with its globular pale yellow blooms.
Light shade is ideal, and a slightly moist root area, although it still needs a well drained soil.
Do not plant where the prickly foliage may cause damage.
