The Golden Wattle (Acacia pycnantha) became the Floral Emblem of Australia in 1988, the year of Australia’s bicentenary. It is a shrub or small tree growing about 4 to 8 metres tall and bears dense clusters of golden-yellow flowers. The flowers are fragrant and are used in perfume making.

Louise’s photograph shows fluffy pom-pom like flowers at the end of thin silvery stems.
