In pictures: Australian wattle

Wattles belong to the plant genus Acacia, which contains about 1350 species worldwide, including 1000 in Australia. Ranging from trees to minuscule shrubs, acacias dominate many of our landscapes. On the first day of spring is National Wattle Day, marking the moment in history when the Golden Wattle was made Australia’s official floral emblem. Text by James O’Hanlon.
