"Tree to 10 m tall,..." (Flora of Australia Online)
Cassia tomentella flowers and ripens seed on a timeline similar to Cassia brewsteri. The 15-30cm long pods are closer to cylindric in shape than those of C. brewsteri which have somewhat flattened pods. The seed is used mainly for mine rehabilitation work however the plant is also an obvious subject for cultivation.
Occurs in an area bounded by Airlie Beach, Clermont, The Gemfields west of Emerald, Injune, north-east to Mt Perry. Noted again in two locations to the east of Gympie and also in a number of locations near to Toowoomba, Ipswich and Boonah.
