Acacia colei is a perennial bush or tree native to Australia and southern Asia. A common name for it is Cole's wattle. It grows to a height of up to 9 m. Acacia colei blooms from June through July and the flowers are bright yellow.
Its uses include environmental management, forage and wood. The seeds are good-tasting and are potentially useful as food for humans. The results of tests in Nigeria for the feasibility of raising the tree as a drought-resistant food crop came out very positively.
