Standard Cyclopedia of Horticulture

Acacia falcata, Willd. (A. plagiophylla, Spreng.). Tree or tall shrub: phyll. distinctly pinniveined, lanceolate-falcate, much narrowed toward base, 3-6 in. long; nerve excentric; gland at base or none: racemes shorter than phyll., 20 fls. in a head; sepals free, narrow, ciliate, about half as long as petals; petals striate, with prominent midrib: pod flat, 2-3 in. long, 1/4in. wide; seed longitudinal, close to the margin; funicle colored, extending around seed and bent back on itself in a double fold, enlarged at hilum end into a fleshy aril. — This may be distinguished from A. penninervis by its smaller pod (half the size), by its gland close to base instead of distant from it, and by its free, narrow, spatulate ciliate sepals.
