Coastal Wattle

Coastal Wattle 1

We have noticed this wattle growing in many parts of Perth recently, including Bold Park and Lake Claremont. It is called Coastal Wattle (Acacia cyclops) and grows along the West Australian coast from about Geraldton to the South Australian border.

The flowers aren’t particularly spectacular by wildflower standards, but the seeds with their brilliant red surrounding ring are quite amazing. They are definitely a “red eye special”.
