A botanic garden near me has a whole bunch of labeled Acacia species, seems like something that might be useful to some people.


And just to make it clear, botanic gardens should not be considered a source! They are a useful reference for people like myself who want to get familiar with the appearance and qualities of various species.


I know where that botanical garden is.... I've been there before Big grin

Hi guys, could I get some help on ID'ing the variant of A. Acuminata that I have found. It is likely that it is the typical variant but the only thing which seems off is that a lot of the seeds, but certainly not all, are quite turgid. Unfortunately, I could not see any seeds which were already ripe so I just got all the seed pods that came along with the twigs I picked. I'm thinking that perhaps some of the flatter seeds are just not fully developed yet. This makes me think that it is a possibility of being A. acuminata (acuminata/burkitti variant 2).

Here are the dimensions:

Phyllodes: 5-10mm wide, most longer than 10mm
Seeds (in terms of the more mature-looking ones): about 4mm wide, 3mm thick
Pods: 4-5mm wide

And below are some pics

Edit: Another thing to note is that an a/b of over 700g fresh phyllodes seems to be yielding very little and I am a bit puzzled by it. Are fewer alkaloids made during seed production as is with flowering? Perhaps there is an error in my extraction methods/materials.

“There is a way of manipulating matter and energy so as to produce what modern scientists call 'a field of force'. The field acts on the observer and puts him in a privileged position vis-à-vis the universe. From this position he has access to the realities which are ordinarily hidden from us by time and space, matter and energy. This is what we call the Great Work."
― Jacques Bergier, quoting Fulcanelli

I picked the right time to be interested in Acacias. Turns out there's a tree on campus that I've passed many times before, but only today did I realize it was an Acacia. There was a small sign attached to the trunk with the words "Acacia Longifolia, E. Australia".

However, the phyllodes seemed more narrow than what I had expected.
Can someone here help me shed light on this Surprised ? The tree was no taller than 5 meters tall.

EDIT: I'm pretty sure it is A. Longifolia



This tree is definitely NOT A. Longifolia as the flowers are very white and Longifolia flowers are usually very lemon yellow. I have a few ideas on what it might be but also curious as to your approximate location as it resembles a quite micro-endemic species in the same family. OR it could be one of the variations of Floribunda as mentioned above too.

In regards to the Floribunda conversation, I've noticed some correlation between whiteness of flower and longer length of phyllodes with higher likelihood of alkaloid activity - and the ones with shorter phyllode and yellower flowers yielding nil.
