Acacia suaveolens

Recommended Posts

Does anyone have any experience (or anecdotes) with regard to A suaveolens? 

I have been keeping an eye on them in the local reserves/roadsides and now they've flowered and been identified, wondered if anyone has put them to use. 

They grow fast but sparse and spindly.

 

I will be collecting seed too in a few months once they've set pods, if anyone's interested in some.

I saw a few on a walk around Narrabeen lake near Wakehurst parkway.

They're gorgeous acacias and now flowering!

That lake and channel is an awesome and beautiful part of the world too. 

 

I was at the local tip today and in a new native garden there are great healthy specimens of suaveolens and longifolia bursting with flowers,  and an obtusifolia which was glowing in the sun,  but yet to flower. Definitely heading back at seed pod time!

Are they as suaveolens as their name proclaims them to be?
