"Spreading shrub 1–4 m high." (WorldWideWattle ver. 2)
"Favours sandy and gravelly soil, with Callitris , Casuarina or Eucalyptus." (WorldWideWattle ver. 2)
Despite its manageable growth habit it will take some time to accumulate quanitities of Acacia ixiophylla seed compared to Acacias of comparable size and habit. It is deserving of more utilisation in rehabilitation projects despite little attention to date. A. ixiophylla establishes easily and persists with intense competiton from Eucalyptus species.
We observe one association between this species and some of the eastern and central boxes. This includes, but may not be limited to, Eucalyptus moluccana, E. cambageana and E. pilligaensis.
"Predominantly along the western slopes and plains of the Great Divide from Mt Wilson, N.S.W., N to Miles, Qld, but with sporadic occurrences as far N as Alpha and near Jericho, Qld." (WorldWideWattle ver. 2)
