Vernacular names

Acacia nodiflora is a shrub belonging to the genus Acacia and the subgenus Phyllodineae that is endemic to western Australia.


The harsh, diffuse and intricate shrub typically grows to a height of 0.6 to 2 metres (2.0 to 6.6 ft).[1] The terminal branchlets are sometimes coarsely spiny with 4 mm (0.16 in) long stipules. The phyllodes occur in clusters of up seven. The phyllodes have a linear to linear-oblanceolate shape with a length of 7 to 13 mm (0.28 to 0.51 in) and a width of 0.5 to 1.5 mm (0.020 to 0.059 in).[2] It blooms from August to September and produces yellow flowers.[1] The simple inflorescences occur singly or in groups of up to three per axil. The spherical to obloid flower-heads globular contain 25 to 55 golden flowers. The yellow-brown seed pods that form after flowering have a narrowly oblong shape and have a length of 6.5 cm (2.6 in) and a width of 7 to 8 mm (0.28 to 0.31 in). The dull brown seeds within the pods have an oblong shape and a length of around 5 mm (0.20 in).[2]

It is native to a small area in the Wheatbelt region of Western Australia where it is found on rocky hills and granite ranges growing on rocky loam or clay soils.[1] The bulk of the population is found around Carnamah and Morawa where it is found on rocky hills.[2]
