Acacia cedroides is a shrub belonging to the genus Acacia and the subgenus Phyllodineae that is endemic to Western Australia.

Description

The dense and prickly shrub typically grows to a height of 0.3 to 1 metre (1 to 3 ft).[1] It has finely ribbed and striated hairy branchlets with linear-triangular stipules that are 1.5 to 4 mm (0.059 to 0.157 in) in length. The rigid, green, inclined to ascending phyllodes are often shallowly incurved with a length of 1 to 4 mm (0.039 to 0.157 in) and a width of 0.8 to 1.3 mm (0.031 to 0.051 in).[2]

It blooms from August to November and produces cream-yellow flowers.[1] The simple inflorescences has spherical flower-heads that contain 15 to 25 cream to pale yellow coloured flowers. The curved red to brown coloured seed pods that form after flowering have a length of 5 cm (2.0 in) and a width of 2.5 to 3.5 mm (0.098 to 0.138 in). The oblong grey-brown seeds within the pods have a length of 4 to 5 mm (0.16 to 0.20 in).[2]
Distribution

It is native to an area along the south coast in the Great Southern and the Goldfields-Esperance regions of Western Australia between Jerramungup and Ravensthorpe where it is found on rocky hillsides growing in shallow stony soils[1] with most of the population found in the Fitzgerald River National Park.[2]
