Author's notes

Bushes are a bit scrappy - they are on a steep north facing slope with terrible soil probably planted.

The phyllodes have only one vein and appear to be A.rubida.

Also not longifolia because longifolia flower heads are cylindrical. Rubida is a much better fit. The flower heads are a bit young to count the flowers but one of them appears to have about 10 flowers, in the range of 10-20;flowers per head of rubida. Also the gland on one of the phyllodes appears to be in the right place for rubida (1-4 cm above the base of the phyllode).
