Acacia maidenii

Scientific NameAcacia maidenii
CategoriesNitrogen FixerTreeWattle
Common Name(s)Maiden's Wattle


"Tall shrub or tree to 20 m high." (WorldWideWattle ver. 2)


"Grows usually in more fertile soils, sometimes derived from basalt, often on the edges of littoral rainforest. Flowers mostly Jan.–June." (WorldWideWattle ver. 2)

The seed collector will find this Acacia produces seed often enough, particlularly because it prefers more substantial soils where water availability will generally be higher. However it is not so generous with its seed and the pods require substantial threshing.

Historical Notes


"Occurs in Qld, N.S.W. and Vic. E of 148E, in coastal and subcoastal environments, from Proserpine in the north to Orbost in the south." (WorldWideWattle ver. 2)
