Daviesia pachyphylla – Ouch Bush

An open spreading shrub which is well named, as the succulent blue grey foliage with sharp points will draw blood. In winter, the branches are covered in yellow and brown attractive pea flowers. Naturally grows in the Stirling range area in Western Australia, in full sun and on sandy soils. Suitable for well drained soils, and gardening masochists.
