Is this small tree a wattle?

stockard43August 19, 2014

I was given this tree, supposedly a wattle but it has not flowered as yet. Now I am wondering what i have planted! Currently it is only 3 ft high but it is growing rapidly without any nurturing at all, so it is a tough one. Many thanks in advance

It does look like a wattle and presumably too young to flower.
You could google (endlessly) on leaves for SA acacia

Or you could go to this site for trying to match it on keys

or you might simply send a pic to your botanical gardens and ask for help

It's definitely an Acacia, not a Eucalypt. Looks a bit like A. holosericea, but I don't know whether that one grows in SA. You've got about 600 or 700 species Australia wide to pick from.
