Acacia ephedroides is a tree belonging to the genus Acacia and the subgenus Juliflorae that is endemic to a reasonably large area in south western Australia.


The weeping tree typically grows to a height of 1 to 4 metres (3 to 13 ft) with minni ritchi peeling bark.[1] It has densely haired branchlets. Like most species of Acacia it has phyllodes rather than true leaves. The evergreen phyllodes have a filiform shape and are substraight to shallowly incurved and terete to compressed. The phyllodes have a length of 6 to 16 cm (2.4 to 6.3 in) and a diameter of 0.7 to 1 mm (0.028 to 0.039 in) are densely haired and not rigid and have eight prominent nerves that are each separated by deep furrows.[2] It blooms from August to October producing yellow flowers.[1]

It is native to an area in the Peel and Wheatbelt regions of Western Australia where it is commonly situated amongst granite outcrops growing in sand, clay or clay-loam soils.[1] It is found around the Jarrahdale in the west to around Manmanning to around Hyden in the east as apart of srubland or open woodland communities.[2]
