A web guide to the wattles of New South Wales
(the genus Acacia) are prominent and often horticulturally
desirable members of the Australian flora. Many species of Acacia are
very beautiful and amenable to garden cultivation when reasonable conditions are provided.
WattleWeb documents the acacias of New South Wales, with descriptions of the
species, notes on distribution and ecology, images and identification
keys. Navigate to an alphabetical listing of species (with hyperlinks) by clicking on The Species button.
Other buttons are self-explanatory, and provide gateways to different ways of approaching the site.
WattleWeb will help those who appreciate the Australian 'bush', as well as
naturalists and fieldworkers, to come to know and recognise the large number of Acacia
species which may occur in their own area and in New South Wales
generally. Gardeners may also be encouraged to grow more interesting, and very
often more suitable, species of wattle.
Feedback is appreciated, and we are always seeking to provide the most useful information in the most useful way.
