Identification

Phyllodes are 10-19 cm long and 20-55 mm wide, usually with three prominent longitudinal nerves. A dense covering of short hairs on the phyllodes gives the plant a characteristic silvery-blue appearance.

Alkaloid content

Claimed to contain up to 1.8% DMT in bark[2], 0.2-0.6% in leaf,[3] but others have found no alkaloids, or nearly none in this species

Other uses

Its uses include environmental management, forage and wood. The seeds are good-tasting[4] 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.[5]
