Acacia: Cat's-claw Acacia or Wait-A-Minute Bush Acacia greggii

FAMILY: FABACEAE (Bean Family)

It's easy to see how this acacia got its name: it's bristling with sharp, curving thorns. Look for cat's-claw acacia, or wait-a-minute bush Acacia greggi in the high desert area of the Nativescapes Garden.
