Acacia disparrimaFamily: Fabaceae
Genus: Acacia
Common names: Brown salwood
ALA reference

This wattle can be separated from the other wattles in the reserve that have similarly shaped phyllodes (“leaves”) by observing the veins in the phyllodes. In this species the longitudinal nerves never join each other. The flowering period is very short lived, lasting only a few days to a week. I was amazed to note that all the trees of this species in the reserve and around the district came into bloom on virtually the same day. (January 2008)
