Acacia decurrens

Acacia decurrens

Acacia decurrens is a fast-growing tree, reaching 15 m high with beautiful yellow flowers. German botanist Johann Christoph Wendland first described this species as Mimosa decurrens in 1798, therefore it is called sometimes as mimosa. Today common names include coast green wattle, black wattle, early black wattle, Sydney green wattle, queen wattle. An edible gum oozing from the tree’s trunk can be used as a substitute for gum arabic. Acacia decurrens bark contains about 37–40% tannin. The flowers are used to produce yellow dye, and the seed pods are used to produce green dye. Acacia decurrens seeds oil is commonly used in cosmetics.
