Acacia Trees
Q.

I would like a rare tree identified.

I was told this tree is rare. It is growing in Gosnells Western Australia. I have a young sapling that was dug out from next to the original tree. I have provided photos of. It is alive but was told to leave in a pot for at least 18 months before planting. The person who gave it to me also has Wisteria Tree, that I have as well but mine has never flowered and is about 15- 18 years old but would like to know, if competition from surrounding mature gum trees is robbing it of light and nutrients. It is about 5 metres tall and healthy. Hopefully we can have my tree identified ! Thank you Dianne 🤞🏻🤔🌳

As for the Wisteria... It is most likely due to the competition around it. This article will give you information on the care of these: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/vines/wisteria/growing-wisteria-proper-wisteria-vine-care.htm

This is a type of Acacia Tree. These are quite invasive here in the U.S. They take over and kill out naturalized trees here. Many have thorns, and many do not.
