[Wikipedia] New South Wales native: Acacia baileyana or Cootamundra wattle is a shrub or tree in the flowering plant family Fabaceae. The scientific name of the species honours the botanist Frederick Manson Bailey. It is indigenous to a very small area in southern inland New South Wales, comprising Temora, Cootamundra, Stockinbingal and Bethungra districts. However, it has been widely planted in other Australian states and territories. In many areas of Victoria, it has become naturalised and is regarded as a weed, outcompeting indigenous Victorian species. (contributed by Mary Ann Machi)

It is native to Southeastern Australia. It favors scrub and chaparral habitat. It has long-lived seeds that accumulate in the soil and germinate after fires, hot weather or other disturbances.
