Acacia calamifolia (Reed-leaf wattle) is a medium sized shrub growing up to 4m tall with long very narrow leaves and small yellow flower heads on stalks which appear in spring. This is a widespread species which can be seen along roadsides in inland NSW, Victoria and South Australia. It is adaptable to cultivation but may require some canopy protection in very frosty areas. Must be grown from seed.

Acacia victoriae, also known as the Bramble or Elegant Wattle. Acacia seeds have been eaten by the Aborigines long before white settlement. They can be steamed like peas, when green or dried and ground into flour. Very nutritious!
