Daviesia arborea – Golden Pea Tree

A large shrub to small tree with a weeping habit, with yellow pea flowers with clusters of brown-red centres in early spring. It has attractive furrowed corky bark. It can grow to 14 metres in its natural range, but tends to be smaller in cultivation. It is prized by cabinet makers for its hard and close grained timber. Likes a sunny position, well drained soil, tolerant of some frost.

It naturally grows in moist forests on the NSW north coast to Queensland.
