Bushy shrub or tree to 4 metres tall (occasionally taller). The ferny, bipinnate leaves are bright green or yellow-green, especially when young. The globular flowers are generally pale yellow and are scattered across the plant. These are followed by long (to 12 centimetres) pods which are strongly constricted between the seeds. The pods turn dark at maturity.
Seed is protected by a hard seed coat which must be broken (either by nicking, abrading, or soaking briefly in near-boiling water) before it will germinate. Germinates readily after treatment. May also grow from cuttings.
May flower at any time of the year. Some populations appear to favour a particular season.
Most common along roadsides west of Wagga Wagga, where it is occasionally dominant. Forms dense stands by suckering.
