Vachellia rehmanniana

DESCRIPTION

Previously known as Acacia rehmanniana, this is a small, flat-crowned tree with young branches densely covered with golden, furry hairs which later become grey and peel off to expose a powdery, rusty-red bark. The spines are long and straight, white with a reddish-brown tip. The flowers are white balls, grouped at the ends of the young branches. The fruit is a straight, flat greyish-brown pod.
