Golden Wreath Wattle or Western Wattle or S.W. Wattle


Acacia saligna

Large leaved wattle from the south-west of W.A. Good fodder for sheep, goats, horses and cattle. Fast-growing, fire retardant, nitrogen-fixing shrub to 4 m. It is suitable for soil stabilisation and does well in sand near coastal areas and is ideal for wind break and erosion control. Aborigines used the seeds to make flour.
