The Weeping Wattle is a smallish tree that rarely reaches a height of 10 metres.
During summer it gets clusters of yellow flowers.
Seedpods develop and are usually ripe around February.
The name Weeping Wattle arises from a liquid that drips from the trees. Interestingly this liquid is not from the tree itself. It comes from Cuckoo-spit Insects which feed on the sap of the Weeping Wattle.
The wood of the Weeping Wattle is used to make furniture and ornaments.
