Acacia complanata

Acacia complanataFamily: Fabaceae
Genus: Acacia
Common names: Flat-stemmed wattle
ALA reference

This is a very showy small wattle that has bright golden yellow pompom shaped flowers. The stems are flattened with a winged ridge along each side of the stem making it very easy to identify. I’ve only found a couple of plants in the reserve but there are quite a few growing beside Fort Road in the Canossa bushland. (January 2008)
