Acacia spectabilis or Mudgee Wattle had its origins in Qld and NSW. this is a beautiful upright shrub or small tree with intense yellow coloured balls which are soft to the touch and most attractive to bees, The leaves are ferny and have a soft blue-green shade. This small tree almost glows beside the shaded area of the forest.
Photo taken at the edge of the Serpentine Forest in Western Australia, just opposite Karnup Prison in an area that looks as if had been cultivated once and planted with a variety of Acacias, as some seem to be of E.Aus origin and now returned to wild growth.
