Acacia nebrownii (Water Acacia) is a dense spiny shrub to small tree in South Africa that can reach heights of 20 feet. It typically growing at low elevations in dry grassland and scrub areas along dry water courses forming thickets. The bark is a reddish smooth color with young branches yellowish to orange. White thorns up to two inches long protect wild life nesting within the branches. In bloom a beautiful display of golden yellow balls fill the tree. In Namibia sightings of A. nebrownii hint at underground water, thus the common name 'Water Acacia'.
