Acacias come in all shapes, sizes and forms. Acacia glaucoptera - Flat Wattle is one of the more unusual wattles. It can be found in coastal and inland mallee regions from Albany
to Israelite Bay
. It prefers the heavier well-drained, non-calcareous sandy loams, often on hillsides or around winter-wet depressions. It is a small semi upright shrub with flat green/grey
foliage "wings" spreading from the central stem. Spherical flower heads on long stalks extend at right angles from the stems. Each flower head is made up of many tiny individual flowers. New growth is tinged red.
Flowering start in August.
The main flower colour is yellow.
