I'd claim some special depth of botanical knowledge, but this particular shrub grows all around our house. It's normally pretty straggly looking. The other thing that distinguishes it from its close relatives is the length of the flower stems - similar species have little in the way of visible stems. And yes, World Wide Wattle is very cool site

genistifolia is the one that is found in our area. Good spotting. Thanks for the link to your site. Very comprehensive!

Looks like the "Spreading wattle": http://www.worldwidewattle.com/speciesga...

But there are several similar species and they are hard to distinguish from just a photo.
