Upright shrub to more than 2 metres in height. The leaves are short, linear and terminate in a sharp point. The dense clusters of flowers occur at the ends of the branches. The yellow √ępea√≠ flowers have orange, red and brown markings. These are followed by oval-shaped pods with one or two dark seeds. Note that the form from The Rock is much smaller, possibly owing to soil conditions.
Seed is protected by a hard seed coat which must be broken (either by nicking, abrading or boiling) before germination. Germinates reasonably well after treatment. Also from cuttings.
Chiefly September and October. Occasional out-of-season flowering is observed.
Wagga Wagga Rd northwest of Coolamon, The Rock NR.
