Acacia binervia (Coast Myall, Kai'arrewan (D'harawal))

(Mimosa binervia)

Acacia binervia is a shrub or small tree growing 2-16m tall. Its native distribution ranges from New South Wales (Hunter Region south to Bungonia in the southwest) into Victoria. While adult plants are killed by bushfire Acacia binervia will regenerate after bushfires from a soil-borne seedbank. The species is not known to be invasive anywhere and has not naturalised outside of its native range. While it is unknown how long this species has been in the ornamental plant trade in Australia, it is often sold under the name ‘Silver Spray’. It has blue-green leaves and bright yellow, rod-shaped flowers in spring.
