The botanical name is Acacia Tortilis which is derived from the Greek Akis meaning a point or barb which referes to the thorns and Tortilis means swisted, refering to the shape of the pod.

The tree is semi - deciduous which grows up to 20 m. and dianostic featture is the dense flat crown.

I love them my favorite tree but they do not grow in the colder climate. So I cannot have one in my garden.
