Acacia acuminata – narrow phyllode variety (seed)

Rated 0 out of 5
(be the first to review)



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 of Acacia acuminata

Scarification is required for Acacia acuminata. 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 well drained soil, fast growing and hardy. Likes a full sun position and is tolerant of dry conditions once established. These Western Australian acacia are adapted to less summer rainfall and more in winter.
