Acacia baileyana - Bailey Acacia

Acacia baileyana: Acacia, Greek name for one species of acacia; baileyana, named for one of four botanists named Bailey -- not sure which.

A.b. 'Purpurea' has leaves with a purplish cast.

Bipinnately compound leaves are much smaller than A. dealbata, A. longifolia, or A. melanoxylon.

Yellow flowers in round clusters of stamens, similar to A. dealbata and A. melanoxylon. Compare to A. longifolia's longer flower clusters.

Pea-like seed pods typical of Fabaceae.
