Acacia acuminata – narrow phyllode variety (seed)
Acacia acuminata is a shrub/tree 3-10 metres tall. The narrow phyllode variety is common in the northern, central and eastern wheatbelt and extending slightly into the adjacent Arid Zone, ranging from near Morawa to Balladonia; outlier populations near Ravensthorpe (WorldWideWattle).
The common name refers to the smell of freshly cut wood.
The phyllodes contain a number of tryptamines, notably dimethyltryptamine, similar to Acacia obtusifolia or Acacia courtii and is a great substitute in the garden.
Care and Cultivation
Scarification is required. Pour just boiled water over the seeds and allow to soak for a few hours to overnight. Plant 5mm under the surface of a well drained seed raising mix in full sun. Keep moist until germination.
Prefers a loam/gravel soil. Well drained soil, fast growing and hardy. Likes a full sun position and is tolerant of dry conditions once established.
