Synonyms

Acacia colei is a perennial bush or tree native to Australia and southern Asia. A common name for it is Cole's Wattle. It grows to a height of up to 9 m. Acacia colei blooms from June through July and the flowers are bright yellow.[2]

Uses

Its uses include environmental management, forage and wood.[1] The seeds are good-tasting[3] and are potentially useful as food for humans. The results of tests in Nigeria for the feasibility of raising the tree as a drought-resistant food crop came out very positively.[4]

Phytochemistry

Several recent reports of up to 1.8% dimethyltryptamine bark.
