Dufour-Dror J-M (2012) Alien invasive plants in Israel. Synonyms: Acacia cyanophylla, Acacia bracteata, Acacia lindleyi, Mimosa saligna, Racosperma salignum. The control methodologies used for Acacia saligna include: Hand pulling: preferential methodology for seedlings and small plants. Afterwards it is fundamental to monitor the efficiency of the methodologies and recuperation of the intervened area as to perform, whenever necessary, the follow-up control. Evaluation Summary. 2011,Wilson et al. Shrub or small tree up to 8 m; with a dark grey rhytidome smooth or finely fissured. Wendl.

Orange wattle has long (7-21 cm), thin leaves (each with a prominant midvein) that differentiate it from other Acacia species. Hand pulling must be made during the rainy season as to facilitate the removal of the root system. Consejería de Medio Ambiente, Junta de Andalucía, Sevilla, 233pp. Controlling an invasive species demands a well-planned management, which includes the determination of the invaded area, identifying the causes of invasion, assessing the impacts, defining the intervention priorities, selecting the adequate control methodologies and their application.

Common names: Port Jackson wattle, blue-leaved wattle, Status in Portugal: invasive species (listed in the annex I of Decreto-Lei n° 565/99, of 21 December), Synonymy: Acacia bracteata Maiden & Blakely, Acacia cyanophylla Lindl., Acacia lindleyi Meissner, Mimosa saligna Labill., Racosperma salignum (Labill.) Invasive potential. It is grown as an ornamental and has become naturalized in coastal and southern California as well as in other Mediterranean climates in South Africa, parts of southern Europe, and where it is not native in southeastern Australia. We sampled vegetation in lowland and mountain fynbos cleared of invasive Acacia saligna using the “fell, stack and burn” method. Plants can reproduce vegetatively and produce copious amounts of seed. Wildfire favors its spread by promoting regrowth and germination. Allelopathy and Potential Impact of Invasive Acacia saligna (Labill.) Bright yellow, globe-shaped flowers bloom from August to November. 00289.x. Orange wattle has long (7-21 cm), thin leaves (each with a prominant midvein) that differentiate it from other Acacia species. Presentations are linked where available. Wendl.
