A straggly, upright shrub reaching 2.5 metres in height. Leaves are pinnate, consisting of pairs of blue-green, oblong or elliptic leaflets. The long inflorescences consist of clusters of pale-pink to purple ‘pea’ flowers. These are followed by roughly cylindrical pods, which are generally around 4 cm in length. The pods contain a number of hard, cubic seeds. The plant usually seeds profusely.
Seed is protected by a hard seed coat which must be broken (either by nicking, abrading or boiling) before germination. Germinates readily after treatment. Cuttings may also work. Once established, it multiplies rapidly by seed and suckers.
Chiefly July to October.
