I just posted a photo of the first K. nigrans I ever saw (which is what temped me into yet another folly in growing non-Tasmanian plants in our yard, although, admittedly, some mainland plants do manage to hang on) . http://www.projectnoah.org/spottings/698...

Kennedia nigrans, is a beautiful plant, very striking, you did well to get it to grow at all

Nice. I've never actually seen one. I had a Kennedia nigrans for awhile, but it didn't like the frosts.
