Fabaceae > Acacia spectabilis var. ,

Acacia spectabilis (Mudgee Wattle) is an erect or spreading shrub, endemic to Australia.[1] Alternative common names include Glory Wattle, Pilliga Wattle and Golden Wattle[2]

It grows to between 1.5 and 4 metres metres high and has pinnate leaves.[1] The bright-yellow globular flowerheads appear in axillary racemes, mostly between July and November in its native range.[1] These are followed by thin leathery pods which are 4–17 cm long and 10–19 mm wide.[1]

The species occurs naturally in dry sclerophyll forest and heath in New South Wales and Queensland and is commonly cultivated.[1]
