dealbata (silver wattle) is a very common tree or large shrub
found in wet forests throughout Tasmania. It has silvery bipinnate
leaves. It is sometimes confused with black wattle (A. mearnsii),
but tends to be larger and has silvery whitish leaves. The glands are also
distinctive (with one gland along the main leaf axis for each pair
of pinnae, rather than two). It flowers earlier (August-mid
September) than A. mearnsii.
