Vernacular names
English: Varnish Wattle

Acacia verniciflua, commonly known as varnish wattle,[2] is a shrub or small tree species that is endemic to Australia.[2] It has an erect or spreading habit, growing to between 1 and 6 metres high, The phyllodes are often sticky and lustrous and vary in length, width and shape. The globular pale-yellow flowerheads appear in the leaf axils from July to November, followed by seedpods that are up to 10 cm long and unconstricted. These contain shiny black seeds.[3][2] It is often found growing alongside Eucalyptus obliqua where it can dominate the understory.

Three forms identified in the Flora of Victoria (1996) have since been assigned to other species as follows:

A. verniciflua (Bacchus Marsh variant) - Acacia rostriformis
A. verniciflua (Casterton variant) - Acacia exudans
A. verniciflua (Southern variant) - Acacia leprosa var. graveolens[1]

The species occurs in dry sclerophyll forest in South Australia, Victoria, New South Wales and Queensland.[2]
