Bush for ID : Lalbagh,Bangalore : 010518 : AK-1 : 12 posts by 4 authors. Attachments (5)

Saw this unusual bush or small tree spreading in Lalbagh yesterday (3o.4.18).

There were only pods, no flowers.


Pl. check 

Does not seem to match with any species at Acacia or Prosopis


This is an introduced species from Africa. Dr. M. Sanjappa identified this to be Acacia robusta subsp. clavigera. One has to consult Fl. Zambiens for confirmation.


Many thanks to you for the suggested id.

Hope to be able to see the flowers sometime later.

Thanks a lot. It does look similar.


 

 

In extremely arid conditions, it may occur as a small, wiry bush. It grows up to 21 m (69 ft) in height.[3]
The tree carries leaves that grow to approx. 2.5 cm (1 in) in length with between 4 and 10 pair of pinnae each with up to 15 pairs of leaflets. Flowers are small and white, highly aromatic, and occur in tight clusters. Seeds are produced in pods which are flat and coiled into a springlike structure.


I think Acacia robusta subsp. clavigera (E.Mey.) Brenan as per images and details herein.

link you gave has error message. i found it on this page on our website. ttps://sites.google.com/site/efloraofindia/species/a—l/f/fabaceae/acacia/acacia-robusta-subsp-clavigera


And that page i just gave above
has only one case:  the seed pods are more or less straight in Aarti’s case and she has not shown the two pronged thorn that … has 
and the flowers. i am not sue we can compare these two cases based on their pictures as they are given


Thanks, … I will try to correct the link I made on genera pages.
