Vernacular names

Acacia hadrophylla is a shrub of the genus Acacia and the subgenus Plurinerves that is endemic to south western Australia.


The dense spreading shrub typically grows to a height of 0.3 to 0.5 metres (1 to 2 ft)[1] with a dense domed to obconic habit. The has hairy branchlets and, like most species of Acacia has phyllodes rather than true leaves. The thick, rigid and evergreen phyllodes have an oblong-elliptic shape and are slightly incurved. They are generally 0.7 to 2.5 cm (0.28 to 0.98 in) in length and 2.5 to 5.5 mm (0.098 to 0.217 in) and have four to seven prominent distant yellowish coloured nerves.[2] It blooms from June to September and produces yellow flowers.[1] The simple inflorescences occur in pairs in the axils and have spherical flower-heads that have a diameter of 3 to 3.5 mm (0.12 to 0.14 in) and contain 14 to 25 golden coloured flowers. Following flowering linear shaped seed pods form that have a length of 1.2 to 2.2 cm (0.47 to 0.87 in) in length and 2 mm (0.079 in) wide and contain brown-black oblong-elliptic shaped seeds that are 2.5 to 3 mm (0.098 to 0.118 in) in length.[2]

It is native to an area in the southern Wheatbelt and Goldfields-Esperance regions of Western Australia where it is commonly situated on undulating plains growing in sandy, loamy and clay loam soils.[1] It has a scattered distribution from around Mount Holland and Lake King in the west to around Kumarl and Scaddan in the east where it is often a part of open scrub and shrubland mallee communities.[2]
