In the Los Angeles County Arboretum (California, USA) you will find a very large section named “Australia” where many Australian native plants and trees grow (they like our climate). This is one of many acacia varieties growing there, more popularly known as wattles in their native land. Sorry, but I have no idea exactly which variety of acacia this is (there are so many).

    Wonderfully captured, Celeste….I love the way the buds appear to be climbing up the stem!

  • Many thanks, Lynn! I agree, as I was attracted to the growth pattern.

    So unusual looking the way the buds are making their way up the loopy stem or vine….Beautiful light and that golden color sure looks lovely against a black frame…really nice, Celeste!

  • Thank you, Katherine! You described the appeal of this plant when I came upon it. The trick was getting separation from the background.
