ALA reference

This wattle is common in the reserve and grows to about 20 metres in height. It can be distinguished from the other wattles in the reserve by the following features; the longitudinal veins in the phyllodes (leaves) are joined and there are prominent lenticels (small raised white dots) on the branchlets. The pale yellow flowers are followed by long thin twisted and coiled seed pods. (April 2008)
