Acacia lanei R.S.Cowan & Maslin

Nuytsia 7(2): 192 (1990).

Acacia lanei, commonly known as Hyden wattle,[2] is a shrub of the genus Acacia and the subgenus Plurinerves that is endemic to south western Australia.


The spreading shrub typically grows to a height of 1.5 to 2.3 metres (5 to 8 ft)[3] and has resin-ribbed branchelts that are covered in fine white silky hairs. Like most species of Acacia it has phyllodes rather than true leaves. The ascending evergreen phyllodes have a linear to linear-elliptic shape and are straight to slightly curved with a length of 4.5 to 6 cm (1.8 to 2.4 in) and a width of 3 to 5 mm (0.12 to 0.20 in) and have numerous subdistant nerves.[2] It blooms from July to September and produces yellow flowers.[3]

It is native to an area in the Wheatbelt region of Western Australia where it is usually situated along creeks and drainage lines growing in gravelly loam, clay and clay-loamy soils.[3] It has a limited distribution to a small area around the town of Hyden where it is often a part of Eucalypt woodland communities and is often associated with Eucalyptus loxophleba or Eucalyptus salmonophloia. It has also been grown as a windbreak and is found to be unpalatable to livestock.[2]
