Acacia koa
Koa
Koa (Acacia koa) is a large flowering tree that is part of the legume family. It is endemic to Hawaii. The trunk of the tree has traditionally been used by indigenous peoples to build vessels similar to dugout canoes and surfboards. In the Hawaiian language, the word "koa" means "brave" or "bold."
Acacia pravissima
Wedge-leaf wattle
Wedge-leaf wattle (Acacia pravissima) is native to New South Wales, Australia, but has spread to neighboring states, where it threatens the local flora. Because of its interesting foliage and masses of yellow flowers, it is a popular ornamental. It does best when planted in moist soil in a sheltered spot.
Acacia pycnantha
Golden wattle
Golden wattle (Acacia pycnantha) is a tree that is a part of the legume family; it is native to southeastern Australia and is the official floral emblem of the country. The bark of the tree is high in tannins and has been cultivated for this compound. The yellow flowers are cross-pollinated by some species of nectar-eating birds.
Acacia myrtifolia
Myrtle wattle
Myrtle wattle (Acacia myrtifolia) is a striking shrub first described by the famous botanist Carl Ludwig von Willdenow in 1806. This plant produces pretty white flower tufts that reward cultivators with its ornamental value, especially in coastal gardens due to its salt tolerance. This acacia is a useful and attractive low-maintenance species for environments such as roadsides where its thick foliage provides an effective windbreak.
Acacia confusa
Small Philippine Acacia
Small Philippine Acacia (Acacia confusa) is a perennial tree native to Southeast Asia that has proliferated in tropical places around the globe and caused problems as an invasive species. However, its wood has also been put to use, for example as support beams for underground mines in China.
Acacia melanoxylon
Blackwood
Blackwood (Acacia melanoxylon) is a deciduous tree that's also known as the "Black Wattle," "Lightwood," and "Tasmanian Blackwood." It's a member of the Legume family, which also includes peas and beans. Blackwood is a native of Australia. It's also found in a small part of the eastern coast of the United States.
Acacia glaucoptera
Clay wattle
Clay wattle, with its striking curved, blue-green leaf-like structures (phyllodes), adapted to survive in arid environments, this bushy shrub commands attention. Its vivid yellow flowers blossom in globular clusters, signaling the adaptability of clay wattle to thrive under harsh sunlight and poor soil conditions. These robust features contribute to its resilience and distinctive appearance.
Acacia baileyana
Cootamundra wattle
Cootamundra wattle (Acacia baileyana) is a large evergreen shrub or small tree that will grow from 6 to 9 m tall. It has a wide canopy and weeping branches. Its feathery foliage emerges in different shades of purple changing to bluish gray as they mature. Blooms in spring with fragrant golden-yellow flowers. Thrives in full sun with moist well-drained soil.
