Vernacular names

Acacia caesariata is a shrub of the genus Acacia and the subgenus Plurinerves. It is native to an area in the Wheatbelt region of Western Australia.[2]


The dense rounded shrub typically grows to a height of 0.6 to 1.6 metres (2.0 to 5.2 ft).[2] It has hairy and slightly ribbed branchelts that have persistent stipules with a length of 1.5 to 4 mm (0.059 to 0.157 in).Like most species of Acacia it has phyllodes rather than true leaves. The leathery, dull green to grey-green, erect to ascending phyllodes have an oblanceolate to linear-oblanceolate shape and can be straight to shallowly incurved. the phyllodes are 2 to 4.5 cm (0.79 to 1.77 in) in length and 2 to 10 mm (0.079 to 0.394 in) wide and have three to five or more subdistant longitudinal nerves per face.[3] It blooms from August to September and produces yellow flowers.[2]

It has a disjunct distribution from around Kununoppin in the north to Lake Grace in the south where it grows in gritty clay and loam soils as a part of Eucalyptus woodland and mallee scrub communities.[3]
