Like most species of Acacia it has phyllodes rather than true leaves. The evergreen phyllodes are ascending to erect with a straight to shallowly incurved shape. They have a length of 10 to 18 cm (3.9 to 7.1 in) and a width of 1.3 to 6.5 mm (0.051 to 0.256 in) and have many closely parallel fine nerves.[2] It blooms from June or August to October producing yellow flowers.[1]

There are two varieties:

Acacia stereophylla var. cylindrata
Acacia stereophylla var. stereophylla
