ACACIA GALPINII
Monkey Thorn

This is a rare tree in the US. It is hard to say how big it may get. I'm guessing around 15'-20' in tropical areas, but we grow it mainly as a pre-bonsai. It grows really fast, the branches arch down, the leaflets are small, and it has a interesting peeling bark, like Melaleuca does. It has thorns along the branches. I haven't seen it flower yet. Full sun, average water and fertilizer.
