I've played with dichotymous tables and identification charts and am
still none the wiser. There's a few wattles around our place (and all
over Lapstone for that matter) that are in heavy flower at the moment
and I want to ID them. The flowers are traditional small yellow balls,
clumped together in huge lumps. Bright butter yellow. The trunk is
black, foliage a silvery green. The leaves are ovate (though I believe
that being an acacia they're not actually leaves) with a bit of a
point on either end. I remember seeing a lot of them around the Snowy
Hydro dams about a year ago. Any idea what they are? I've got a
feeling that they're a woody weed. And it's definitely not the
Cootamundra wattle.
