- Port Jackson is a common evergreen shrub or
- It grows in fynbos, near streams and wetlands
and on the coastal plain where there is a high water table.
- It has long, slender
phyllodes that look like leaves. These
long phyllodes make the plant look like a willow tree although it is
actually an acacia tree.
- The Port Jackson Willow produces bunches of bright yellow flowers like
small pom-poms from Spring to early Summer.
- The slim, straight pods are brown with a pale
edge, and slightly constricted between the seeds. They fall off the plant
after releasing the shiny dark brown seeds.
