Description: 
Acacia horrida, a very small bush not over 2 ft. high. Not even attractive to goats. But it should have a place as a hedge plant or ornamental in portions of the states. The white spines are as showy as flowers. Especially when the tree is leafless. [Shantz travel journal, Sep. 17, 1919]
