Description

Acacia decurrens, known as Black Wattle, is a perennial tree or shrub native to eastern NSW, including Sydney, the Greater Blue Mountains Area, the Hunter Region, and south west to the ACT. It grows to a height of 2–15m and it flowers from July to September.

The bark of older stems is fissured and brown, dark grey or black in colour. Younger stems have smooth bark and the branches have conspicuous wings or ridges (0.5-2 mm high) that emanate from the leaf bases (i.e. they are decurrent). These branches are hairless (i.e. glabrous), or sparsely covered in very small hairs (i.e. puberulent). The young foliage-tips are yellowish-green or yellow in colour.

The leaves are twice-compound (i.e. bipinnate) and dark green on both sides.

The small yellow or golden-yellow flowers are very cottony in appearance and are densely attached to the stems. In each head with 5–7 mm long and 60–110 mm long axillary raceme or terminal panicle. They are bisexual and fragrant.

  • Common Name.

Acacia Bark; Early Green Wattle; Sydney Wattle; Wattle Bark; Tan Wattle; Golden Teak; Brazilian Teak.

 

  • Germination.
