7th September - Acacia paradoxa - Kangaroo Thorn

Acacia paradoxa

Reasonably widespread throughout south eastern Australia, kangaroo thorn grows to 3m high.

Flowering occurs from August through to October. 

Acacia paradoxa doesn't seem to have any threats. In fact it is a declared noxious weed in some parts of Australia. It thrives on fire and can become a real problem where fire is used as a management tool.

There seems to be little problem with managing this plant other than removing excess plants where necessary.
