Sunshine Wattle Flower Essences
The Wattle is Australia’s national flower. The Eucalyptus tree, with over 700 varieties is often thought to be Australia’s most widely scattered plant. However, Wattles far exceeds the Eucalyptus with approximately 800 varieties in Australia alone. Then, there are the 100 varieties in Africa and warm countries elsewhere. Wattles grow in sandy seaside locations, in the rainforests and in the dry inland areas. There are also small, herb-like Wattles (Acacia baueri) and big trees (Acacia bakeri) that can exceed 35 metres.
Wattles are leguminous (nitrogen collectors) and quickly spread themselves on freshly cleared land and after bush fires. It prepares the ground well for other plants to follow by making good soil through nitrogen fixing and providing good shade. Ironically, it has a fairly short life span itself. The Sunshine Wattle’s pollen makes its flowers look yellow from a distance but its petals show white on closer scrutiny.
