All About Flowers … September 2012

My heartfelt thanks to orkology for identifying this Acacia paradoxa which I photographed by the
roadside at Batemans Bay, New South Wales, Australia on Saturday 8 September 2012.

I love the endless photographic opportunities provided by world around me, from the abundance of nature in my own backyard to historic and scenic worldwide destinations.

    The lighting in the foreground works a treat, Trish, as does the fuzzy background. Beautifully done.

    All I need now is a specific i.d.

    I started the search before I realized that Australia alone has over 1000 species of Acacia. YIKES! lol…not sure how to go further with that one…sorry Trish

  • Carla, thank you for looking … it’s a daunting task … I did quite a bit of research on the net, but although I found several “prickly” varieties, in each case either the leaf structure or blossom arrangement didn’t seem quite right. I am hoping that someone who “knows” Australian Acacias might come up with the specific i.d.

    I was finding the same issue especially with the leaves. This one seems to have smaller ones then any I was seeing on line. We’ve a few introducted acacias here in the States but I’ve never been blessed to see one blooming.

  • Carla, thank you so much for your efforts !
    “orkology” has correctly identified Acacia paradoxa.

    This is Acacia paradoxa which bears the common name Kangaroo Thorn. It seems the paradox part was right for your efforts to name it!

    Cheers, Greg

  • Thank you very much for viewing and identifying Acacia paradoxa Greg !
    Greatly appreciated … cheers
