Acacia cyclops (western coast wattle) also commonly known as red-eyed wattle or western coast wattle, grows well in a coastal situation and when sheltered from the wind can grow to 5 or 6 metres high. The species is drought and lime tolerant and quite resistant to sea spray.
Some care must be taken when planting this species in areas outside its natural range as it may have a tendency to escape.
Acacia cyclops (western coast wattle) has a long flowering period from early spring to late summer, this makes this acacia quite unique as most acacias have a brief flowering period.
