Acacia aneura, is commonly known as the Mulga Wattle. It is such a dominant and conspicuous element of the landscape that it has given rise to the terms ‘mulga country’, or ‘mulga lands’.

The Mulga Wattle is a 2 to 3 meter high shrub in dry situations or on very shallow soils. A hardy plant, the best results from cultivation are when growing conditions are maintained similar to those occurring throughout its natural distribution. Soils supporting A. aneura are usually sands or sandy loams which permit easy infiltration of water, and the plants may be damaged by water saturated soils. Thus, it is not recommended for planting on heavy clay soils, in turf areas or with an understory of high water demanding plants.

Flowering may occur at any time of the year following suitable rains, however the main flowering time is between March and October, with a peak in May. Thin, flat pods, approx. 2 to 5 cm long contain edible dark brown seeds.

Before sowing seed, pour hot water over seed and let stand overnight.  Sow in Spring, using high quality seedling medium.  Germination approx. 3 - 4 weeks.
