Commonly known as Fringed wattle, Acacia fimbriata is found near creeks, on margins of rainforests and on hillsides on rocky, sandy soils.
Acacia fimbriata is a fast growing, nitrogen-fixing shrub or small tree. It can grown on a range of well-drained soils and has an important role to play in catchment protection.
It is great as an ornamental tree or shrub in the home garden.
The seeds can be used as bush tucker by dry roasting mature seed and grinding it into a flour to flavour scones, damper, bread and even icecream.
