Australia's acacia in bloom The sweet-smelling, pretty, lemon yellow flowers on these shrubs and trees truly lifts the spirits! It is a spectacular sight to see whole trees laden with them. <br />
<br />
Unsure if this is one of our winter flowering species or a spring flowering one, blooming early. (I gather that up to a third of our nearly 1000 species of wattle will flower in winter). We have a National Wattle Day on September 1st, the first day of spring. <br />
<br />
The Acacia genus, (which includes all the wattles), is the biggest group of trees and shrubs in Australia, topping even the eucalypts in diversity.<br />
