Common Name: ZIG ZAG WATTLE
Size: NT Premium
Habitat: Coastal Dunes
Description: The zig-zag wattle is a native shrub that grows up to 4 metres in height. The reason for the common name is because it grows in a zig-zag pattern, distinguishing features include alternating phyllodes, yellow globular clusters growing at the forks of the branches and a ‘zig-zag’ stem. It is local to Central Queensland.
Zig-zag wattle is a very showy species which flowers in profusion if conditions are right. It seems to require a cold period (or perhaps an extended cold period) to encourage flowering in warmer coastal regions.
Pot size: 50mm native tube
