    Description

Acacia mangium - Black Wattle

This listing is for a packet of 25 seeds of this tree.

Acacia mangium is a species of flowering tree in the pea family, Fabaceae, that is native to northeastern Queensland in Australia, the Western Province of Papua New Guinea, Papua, and the eastern Maluku Islands. Common names include Black Wattle, Hickory Wattle, Mangium, and Forest Mangrove. Its uses include environmental management and timber production.  It has narrow leaves and yellow scented flowers carried in spring and summer, followed by pods containing several hard seeds.

Acacia mangium grows up to 30 metres (98 ft), often with a straight trunk.  Like many other legumes, it is able to fix nitrogen in the soil. Acacia mangium is a popular species for forest plantation and used more and more also for agroforestry projects. In mixed cultures, plants can profit of the shadow from Acacia mangium and the nitrogen fixation. Acacia mangium will tolerate low fertility soils with impeded drainage, but prefers fertile sites with good drainage. Soil depth and topographic position can influence yields. With respect to distance from the equator, there are significant differences in performance under cultivation. A mean annual height increase of about 3 to 4 m is usual near the equator. In areas further from the equator growth is lower.


It is hardy in Zone 8 and up, meaning it can be grown in many temperate sheltered location.  It can also be used as a fast growing indoor bonsai tree.  Very easy from seed, the germination rates are very high for this species, providing the seed coat is 'damaged' to allow the seed to take on water.  Full growing instructions can be downloaded via this link - Growing Instructions
