Acacia along Jamison Creek

In my post in January on the regrowth of the burnt area, I remarked how the ferns were coming back. We now have lots and lots of acacia ptychoclada appearing

It’s a tall spindly plant with yellow ball flowers, and I am told, uncommon. You can see some larger specimens adjacent to the boardwalk on the track from the Fairmont to Empress Falls.

Some more photos of the area follow.

I’d guess that in three or four months the acacia will be two metres tall and quite spectacular when in flower. We may need some signs identifying them!
