Acacia subracemosa Maslin

Nuytsia 1 (5): 446 (1975).

Acacia subracemosa, also known as western karri wattle,[1] is a shrub of the genus Acacia and the subgenus Pulchellae that is endemic to a small area of south western Australia


The spreading shrub typically grows to a height of 1.8 to 5 metres (6 to 16 ft)[2] and has hairy branchlets. The leaves are composed of three to six pairs of pinnae.[1] It blooms from September to November and produces cream-yellow flowers.

It is native to an area in the South West region of Western Australia where it is found growing in sandy soils over and around limestone.[2] The range of the plant extends from near Witchcliffe in the north and around Augusta with the bulk of the population located to the west of Karridale usually as a part of Eucalyptus diversicolor (karri) forest communities.[1]
