Vernacular names
English: Mallee Wattle

Acacia montana, commonly known as mallee wattle, is a shrub species endemic to south-eastern Australia. The species was first formally described in 1842 by English botanist George Bentham from plant material collected from the "highlands near the Liverpool Plains" in New South Wales.[1] The Latin specific epithet montana refers to mountains or coming from mountains.[2]
