- Acacia Myrtifolia?





- Unknown



wage .. the first photo of post 163 looks to be acacia myrtifolia.. very similar to the form I found. I've noticed this species varies a little with the abundance and colour spectrum of flowers. and the second is maybe of relation to acacia mucronata subs. longifolia.. i see this around quite a lot in bushland outside the city .. that one looks a little differen't in that it has one central vein though
thanks for the pics wage.. some great shots in there! :)
just thought I'd point out that the ones you put up labelled as oxycedrus are actually acacia verticillata.. as well as the other ones you put up a while ago. you'll notice verticillata has more needle-like phyllodes compared to the broader spikes on oxycedrus which have 2-3 veins.. I put a pic of oxycedrus up at the top of the page for comparison.. you won't really find acacia oxycedrus growing around melbourne - a bit of travel will be necessary for that one

oh and the unknown tree below pycnantha is Acacia Stricta followed by Acacia Cultriformis at the bottom

Hey Wage,

I'm pretty certain that your A. oxycedrus is actually A. verticillata. I did an extraction with A. verticillata on the weekend and unfortunately it yielded nothing but a very thin layer of oil :(

Yeah learnt of a similar result tonight, apparently a brown oil that smelt of fresh vegetables that bubbled then solidified under constant heat.
..thanks for the great images all!:)
and wage, that's a very 'active' looking A. longifolia you've found there..

..well spotted Vitalstatistix..!
yes, A. oxycedrus has rod flowers, quite dense and usually pale..
The first unknown in post 165 looks like implexa , many around Vic Im surprised there hasnt been more research on them. They also emit a mysterious vibe.
Great photos.
Hmm I had always thought this was a.pravissima..

Wage this is one of the most psycedelic photographs ever!

You can see so many things in it I saw an entity with spiked wings riding a toy dog that looks like it has the 'Predators' alien cloak as does the rest of her body apart from her head and long legs . The different forms and shapes they take on is incredible hopefully someone will do a time lapse, one over its first year would be intriguing.

Some superb photos in here great skills and great plants!
@ DreaMTripper as with many acacias they're easily confused, looking it up just now i see pravissima has a secondary longitudinal vein, so that may be one way to tell.
Beautiful pictures guys, some really nice work

Out walking a couple of days ago i came across this beautiful si(ght)te, first obtusifolia flowers for the season ;)
