Acacia sentis, F. v. M. A rigid shrub or small tree 30 or 40 ft. high, with terete branchlets and when young either glabrous or pubescent: phyll. various, either lanceolate-oblong with a short point or linear with a hooked point, in some specimens 3/4in. long by 1/6 or 1/4 in. broad and in others again they may be 2 in. long and 1/12in. broad; marginal gland near base or wanting; stipules reduced to spines, occasionally none: fls. solitary or in pairs or racemes, 20-30 fls. in a head; sepals linear, spatulate, ciliate: pod flat, 2-3 in. long, 1/2-3/4in. broad; seeds nearly oblique, the funicle gradually thickened and folded several tunes, fitting against seed like a cap. May. F. v. M. Icon. 4:9.—A desert species commonly growing in sandy soil. It thrives with scant rainfall but requires much light, although in its native country it is now and then found among large trees. It is a valuable fodder plant, cattle eating it greedily. A specimen in Calif. was growing on soil that was almost rock and consequently became shallow-rooted. The wind threw it down repeatedly but each time when set in place it continued its growth, apparently unharmed. In New S. Wales it is said that the presence of this tree is a sure indication of underground water. Its roots have been found 80 ft. from the surface. CH
