Queensland Native Seeds

Acacia fasciculifera

Scientific NameAcacia fasciculifera
CategoriesNitrogen FixerTreeWattle
Common Name(s)Scrub Ironbark
FamilyFabaceae, Subfamily Mimosoideae

Description

"Tree usually to c. 10 m high; canopy dense." (WorldWideWattle ver. 2)

Notes

"Grows in open Eucalyptus forest on ridges or along creeks, or with A. harpophylla." (WorldWideWattle ver. 2) Although often a tall tree, collections of seed from this species are greatly helped by its slightly later ripening and its capability to hold on to old seed for relatively long periods. New ripe seed may be seen in Queensland through December and January at a time when most wattles have finished. The seed is relatively large.

Historical Notes

Distribution

"Occurs mainly from near Boonah N to near Rockhampton, Qld, with a few scattered occurrences further N to near Bowen." (WorldWideWattle ver. 2)
