Acacia acinacea is a flowering shrub growing to 2m in height. It is native to Australia and lives for 15 years (on average). They are tolerant of drought and frost. It is also a species of wattle, and is commonly known as Wreath Wattle, Gold Dust Wattle or Round-leaf Wattle.

They are a hardy, free-flowering species with very specific soil requirements. The requirements are that the soil is well-drained and non-saline, although it can tolerate many different types.
