An upright shrub or tree reaching 30 metres in height, though local forms tend to be smaller. The ferny, bipinnate leaves are typically blue-green or silver-green and very soft. The globular flowers are produced in large clusters at the ends of branches or the bases of leaves. These are followed by long, straight or slightly curved pods which may or may not be constricted between seeds.
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.
Late winter and spring.
Confined to the east of the region, chiefly in and near Murraguldrie. Common in revegetation.
