The Jam Wattle tree is a small tree mainly found in the south west of Western Australia.
Yellow flowers formed in a cylindrical nature can be seen in the spring time. They contrast well against the long and thin bright green leaves.
The timber from this tree is very durable and resistant to termites which made it very useful for fence-posts in the early European settlements in the Wheatbelt region.
Freshly cut wood from this tree is similar to raspberry jam, from which it’s common name is made.
