Poppy, could this plant be a cassia ? They have the same type leaves and pods as in this picture. What do you think ?

Ah yes, I see what you mean now by the common axis. And yes, the leaves are longer than those that are in the above photo. Oh well, I'll keep on trying and if I see anything about this tree, I will let you know. I really would like to know what this tree is. Thanks Poppy....

In false acacia, the leaflets that are on each side of the common axis are farther apart than the leaflets on the leaves in this picture. Also, the leaves of the false acacia are quite a bit longer... If you look at them side by side, they are clearly different. - Thanks a lot, Mary, but don't waste any more time, this is not that important. ;-)

In what way do you think that the leaves are different, Poppy ? I personally feel that this IS false acacia. I can't think what else this could be. Sometimes (as well as the wrong name being given on these) that the picture can distort what the leaves really look like too. That makes it hard to identify the plant. I would have to do more research on this and see what I can find out about it. Thanks again, Poppy. Take care.. :)

I had already gone the same route as you did with the false acacia, but its leaves are different from these. It's true that info at source can be wrong - I have corrected such info more times than I care to remember - but I think that we just have to accept the author's info on this one. ;-)

Poppy, I've just done some looking around online and put in the search box,'acaia like leaves robinia'. Well, it gave me the robinia plant with the common name of 'false acacia'. Don't know if that would shed some new light on the subject. hope it does. Thanks Poppy.

The leaves look alot like the leaves of Robinia. And Robinia has the very same kind of pods on it like in this picture. Sometimes the source can identify wrongly. I've never really seen leaves like this on an acacia tree. But then, who would know personally what each leaf is like on 1,300 acacias ? Not me, that's for sure !

No, definitely not Robinia. If the source said acacia, then it must be, though the leaves still throw me... but there are 1300 different acacias, so the identification process could take till Xmas; not worth it. :-)

The source said 'acacia'. The acacia leaves are different on some trees. I even know one tree to have 2 different types of leaves on it. I don't know which acacia tree that is though. I would have to do some research on that to make sure. What do you think the leaves look like ? Would they be more like the leaves of the Robinia tree ? Many thanks for bringing this to my attention, Poppy.... :)

Mary, are you sure the source said 'acacia' or 'wattle'? The leaves look all wrong for either... Love the pic, though.
