The leaves are greyish green, silvery grey or bluish grey in colour, 30-65 mm long and are twice compound (bipinnate). There are 2-6 pairs of branchlets (pinnae) 1-3 cm long, each with 8-24 pairs of leaflets (pinnules) 3-9 mm long x 0.7 -1.6 mm wide. The flowers are arranged in globular clusters 6-8 mm across; there are 11-25 individual flowers in each cluster each with 5 petals and sepals. The flower heads are borne on stalks along the stem and in clusters of 8-30 flower heads at the end of the branches. The pods are 8-130 mm long and 8-15 mm wide and are either straight or slightly curved. They are bluish green when young but become brown with age. Native to open woodlands of NSW but grown in gardens and widely dispersed by dispersed by ants, wind and water to surrounding bushland...

                 Comments:
Acacia microbotrya is a bushy shrub or tree up to 8 m tall with dark grey bark that is either smooth or rough with longitudinal fissures. Leaves reduced to phyllodes ranging from 70-180 mm long x 5-25 mm wide; they may be straight or sickle-shaped and often hang down. The flower heads are globular 3-6 mm across and composed of 20-35 individual cream to pale yellow flowers each with 5 tiny petals. The flower heads are arranged in clusters of 3-25. Usually, the flowerhead-bearing stalks have yellow or white hairs but hairs are absent on the Acacias in the Roleystone area. The pods are linear, 70-180 mm long x 6-8 mm wide and strongly constricted between the seeds. The seeds are longitudinal in the pod. Grows in clay loam and sandy loam, often near watercourses. The natural range is the central and southern wheatbelt area of WA but it has been widely used in revegetation programs and was probably introduced to the reserves around Roleystone.
