From New South Wales and Victoria coastal areas, Acacia binervia is a spring flowering shrub to a small tree commonly called the Coastal Myall.
Masses of large yellow flowers in spring attract birds and beneficial insects to the garden.
Excellent as a hedging plant for coastal areas, it is also suited as a background shrub or tree in the garden border.
From seed, and this is the way that the plant naturally regenerates after fire.
