Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Acacia brachystachya, commonly known as umbrella mulga, turpentine mulga or false bowgada, is a shrub in the family Fabaceae. The species occurs in mulga and heath communities on sandhills and rocky ridges in all mainland states of Australia, except Victoria. Umbrella mulga grows as a tall, bushy shrub to five metres, with twisted, spreading stems. Like most Acacia species, it has phyllodes rather than true leaves. These may be up to 15 centimetres long, and are mostly one to two millimetres wide. The flowers are yellow, and held in cylindrical clusters about two centimetres long. The pods are long and straight, up to 8 centimetres long and 8 millimetres across. Umbrella mulga is difficult to distinguish from bowgada.show more
