Comment
Acacia baileyana (scientific name: Acacia baileyana) is native to New South Wales in Australia and is an evergreen tall tree of the family Fabaceae. In the early spring, it does expand the general inflorescence and make many small yellow flowers bloom. Another name is also called 'Golden Mimosa'. Leaves are silver-gray and spirally winged feather-like leaves. When the flowers are in full bloom the whole tree stains yellow and draws people's eye. It is an insect flower in which flowers have fragrance and pollen is carried to insects. In the autumn after the flowers it does put a dark brown bean curd. It is used for garden trees, park trees and cut flowers. There is also a Purpurea (scientific name: Acacia baileyana 'Purpurea') whose leaf color is purple in the same acacia ginkgo. In addition, there is Acacia dealbata in the same genus.
