Acacia juncifolia

Scientific NameAcacia juncifolia
CategoriesNitrogen FixerShrubWattle
Common Name(s)Rush-Leaf Wattle
FamilyFabaceae, Subfamily Mimosoideae


"Somewhat spindly shrub to c. 3 m high" (WorldWideWattle ver. 2)


"Grows in shallow sand derived from sandstone or less commonly from granite, in Eucalyptus forest or woodland; in coastal areas it occurs in deep sand in heath." (WorldWideWattle ver. 2)

We also observe Acacia juncifolia on exposed saprolites, often kaolinised, where the parent rocks were metamorphics. In these poor situtations there is very little competition from grasses.

Despite observing Acacia juncifolia quite widely in Queensland we have only been found growing together in very small numbers. Unless or until observed otherwise the seed should possibly be reserved for small specialised jobs either as tubestock or direct seeding with considered sowing rates.

Historical Notes


"Widespread but nowhere common from Port Clinton [formerly Port Bowen] Qld, S to the Glenbrook area, c. 50 km W of Sydney, N.S.W.; extends inland for a maximum of 550 km." (WorldWideWattle ver. 2)
