Acacia aroma

Acacia aroma is a small, perennial, thorny tree native to Bolivia, Peru, Argentina and Paraguay. Some common names for it are Aromita, Aromo Negro, Espinillo and Tusca. It is not listed as being a threatened species.

Although some sources say that Acacia macracantha Humb. & Bonpl. ex Willd. is synonymous with Acacia aroma, genetic analysis of the two species has shown that they are different, but that they are closely related.


A. aroma is used by bees to make honey. The tree's wood is quite hard and it is used for implements, posts and firewood.
