An attractive small shrub when in flower, with large pea shaped golden yellow blooms from late winter to spring. It has fine leaves arranged in groups of three, and the overall effect is of a very delicate plant when not in flower. Most common in Sydney sandstone country to the Blue Mountains, in open forest, so is best in dappled shade to sunny spots, in well drained sandy soil types.
Propagation is by seed which is collected in summer. It needs to be treated with boiling water to break the dormancy.

WHERE TO GET YOUR PLANT
Once you have found the plant that looks right for you, the next step is where to buy it.
Most nurseries stock a good range of plants, but due to space and supplies, they may not always have the plant that you are searching for in stock. If they don’t, they may be able to order it in for you if you request it.
Specialist nurseries are also able to give great advice, and if they don’t have the plant you have planned on, they can often suggest alternatives that will also work well for you.
