Acacia flexifolia is a  rounded shrub to 1.5m high and 2.5m wide, larger in an open site. Small narrow slightly bent foliage. Profuse small yellow flowers in late winter, one of the earlier Acacias to bloom. Dry well drained spot, full or filtered sun. Accepts extended dry periods. While it can be pruned to shape, ours has grown into a compact dense shape on its own and we haven’t pruned it. This plant is found naturally from Stanthorpe in Queensland through western NSW to Bendigo in Victoria. In our garden, it is growing next to a very large Eucalyptus manifera and is doing very well.
