Its stipules are persistent, brown and hairy. The phyllodes are asymmetrical, broadest below the middle and 70–155 millimetres (3–6 in) long and 35–95 millimetres (1–4 in) wide. There are four to five primary veins springing from the phyllode base. It has prominent glands at the pulvinus. Inflorescences are deep yellow spikes in the phyllode axils.
