Acacia acuminataAcacia acuminata

This western Australian endemic shrub was named by the first settlers who noticed that the cut wood had a fruit smelling sap. They decided the smell was most like Raspberry Jam and named the shrub The Jam Tree.

Apart from the far south west corner, Acacia acuminata is fairly common in Western Australia south of Geraldton.
