Bramble Wattle is very wide spread and favours open scrubland and grassland, particularly around creek lines. It is a multi-stemmed bush, growing to a height of about 2 metres. The foliage is blue green in colour and the bark of the branches is smooth, with the upper ends being a vivid green in colour as seen in the above photograph. During the months of Oct, Nov, and Dec, masses of papery seed pods are produced, each one containing four to six brown seeds.
Like other acacias, the seeds are nutritious and were an important food source for Aboriginal people . . .
