Bailey Acacia (Acacia Baileyana) 15 seeds (#678)

Acacia baileyana or Cootamundra wattle, is a shrub or tree in the genus Acacia. The scientific name of the species honours the botanist Frederick Manson Bailey. It is indigenous to a small area of southern New South Wales in Australia, but it has been widely planted in other Australian states and territories. In many areas of Victoria, it has become naturalised and is regarded as a weed, out-competing indigenous Victorian species.
Almost all wattles have Bright yellow flowers. The small flowers are arranged in spherical to cylindrical inflorescences, with only the stamens prominent. Wattles have been extensively introduced into New Zealand.
A. baileyana is used in Europe in the cut flower industry. It is also used as food for bees in the production of honey. (info source: wikipedia.org)

GERMINATION INSTRUCTIONS
1. Pour boiling water over seed, let stand in water for 24 hours, repeat process on seed that did not imbibe. It is called scarification.
2. Sow seed 1/4" (~3-5mm) deep, tamp the soil, mulch the seed bed.
The seed germinates in 3 - 4 weeks at 25°c.
As soon as the seedlings are large enough to handle, prick them out into individual pots and grow them on in a sunny position in the greenhouse for their first winter. Plant them out in late spring or early summer, after the last expected frosts, and consider giving them some protection from the cold for their first winter outdoors. Cuttings of half-ripe wood with a heel, July/August in individual pots in a frame.
Overwinter in a greenhouse for the first winter and plant out in their permanent positions in late spring or early summer.
