The phyllodes grow to a length of 5 to 10.5 cm (2.0 to 4.1 in) and a width of 0.7 to 1 mm (0.028 to 0.039 in) and are not particularly rigid and usually shallowly incurved. The mostly glabrous phyllodes have eight longitudinal nerves each of which is separated by a distinct, longitudinal groove. It blooms in December producing yellow flowers.
