Please can anyone help with identifying these acacias? I collected seedlings that germinated on a Dicksonia antarctica at the nursery where I work
So they are native to tree fern lands as the "trunks" arrive as refrigerated sections.

they are 2 years old now and about 4' tall and survived the UK winter in a polytunnel, we had -9C and plenty of -5C



Or do I need to wait until they flower?

thanks

Flowers would really help, or fruits. A good resource for wattle identification http://www.anbg.gov.au/acacia/species.html
