Large-leaf Bush-pea

Pultenaea daphnoides


A shrub about 3 metres tall with bright yellow pea flowers with deep red keel petals and red markings radiating from the centre on the standard petals. Glossy leaves were wedge-shaped (cuneate) with a short spine at the tip. The flower buds were covered with brown bracts which drop off when the flower opens.


Spotted along the periphery of a sports oval - local park. This plant is endemic to Australia and grows anywhere between heathland and wet sclerophyll forests along the South Australia, eastern coastal states and Tasmania.
