Fabaceae > Acacia glaucoptera var. ,

Acacia glaucoptera, commonly known as Flat Wattle or Clay Wattle, is a species of Acacia which is endemic to the south-west of Western Australia. It is a spreading or erect shrub which ranges in height from 0.3 metres to 1.2 metres, and up to 2 metres in width. It produces yellow, globular flowers between late winter and early summer.

This species is often grown for its unusual "foliage" (its "leaves" are actually cladodes).


It requires good drainage and occasional pruning to remove dead wood. It will withstand temperatures down to -7C.
