#1 = A. Calamifolia
#2 = A. Craspedocarpa
#3 = A. Calamifolia
#4 = A. Spectabilis
#5 = A. Binervata
#6 = A. [unckown?]
#7 = A. Triptera
#8 = A. Leoicalyx
#9 = A. Neurophylla
#10 = A. Denticulosa phyllode
 
they're actually little rasps which cover the whole phyllode leading out to 'teeth' on its margins [hence 'denti'culosa], they're really solid and stiff aswell, making it's surface fairly abrasive, hence the name 'sandpaper wattle'. it's quite a rare one.

also looking at it today i think the unknown #6 may be A. merinthophora, the 'Zig Zag wattle'
 
An impressive healthy specimen of a.retinodes (variety unknowmn) had phyllodes as big as my forearm! Sadly it has since been chopped down as it was considered a weed..

recently bought a decent camera to try and refine my wattle photography. very happy with the results thus far! just visited wilson's promontory in victoria.. some beautiful wattles there. lots of bonding with the various forms of longifolia I came into contact with along the way!

...growing in a population alongside Acacia undulifolia (this was the only one left flowering)

You can see in the background, the a.paradoxa in flower

Nice pics and nice plants! One appears to have an eyeball! :surprised 😁 Im guessing a.longifolia subsp mucronata..or acuminata?
Yes, but I realise a quick look at my previous posts would tell :d
So full of life, that was a month ago. They are full of seed at the moment.
They are very early flowering, perhaps that is a good clue to find them.....

I wonder why they contain DMT. :roll:

Regards G
 
been a while since i've visited this thread but thanking everyone for their stunning contributions.. Gowpen.. your acuminatas are looking beautiful.. the flowers look like they must smell amazing.. here's a few from around the dandenong ranges..

the first three pictures, as if descending from the heavens are of course Acacia Floribunda.. (i loved the unusually broad phyllodes and gentle weeping habit of this one), followed then by a broader leafed variety of acacia mucronata subs. longifolia which in turn seems to be reaching towards the heavens, followed then by a strange form of mucronata which seems to be intermediate with floribunda (distinguished from floribunda by the shorter less abundant infloresence but in ways possessing similar foliage.. usually found on roadsides or small park reserves around the area)

the final pic is acacia oxycedrus

:love:
Strange how after visiting the same spot for months now, entering into a deep relationship with my surroundings that only now, does the mother lead me down a path towards this spectacular specimen.
I'll see you in Autumn my love :)

hey all, thought I'd make a thread where people can bask in the beauty of the Acacia and Mimosa species. really been enjoying researching the acacia trees over the past year and along the way have gotten some really nice photos and thought I'd share. Hope to see some photos from all you wattle/mimosa-heads

I'll get the ball rolling... the first four are of Acacia Longifolia .. more to come. This is a good tryptamine candidate if you can find the right strain

Is there any particular reason I cannot see 70% of the pictures on nexus?
