A showy evergreen shrub or small multi-trunked tree, Acacia cultriformis is an eastern Australian native popular for its striking grey/blue foliage and spectacular flower display. Small, wedge-shaped, gray-blue foliage is densely whorled along the length of its long, arching branches.

Blooms profusely with clusters of tiny, fragrant, bright yellow pom-pom flowers in late winter and early spring. Grows 10 to 15 feet tall and wide. Plant in full sun to light shade inland and water occasionally to infrequently. Not particular about soil type as long as it is well draining. Does well in nutrient-poor soil. Tolerates seaside conditions

This acacia requires full sun and well-drained soil in a frost-free climate and dislikes transplanting, so young seedlings should be moved to their final location in the garden or in containers early. Like other members of the pea family, this species plays host to microorganisms that return the favor of a free meal by making atmospheric nitrogen available to the plant.

This plant is used regionally to make honey; acacia honey is a bit darker than clover honey, but it has a fragrance that is highly desirable. The flowers of this shrub are edible. They are often used in fritters.
