Gompholobium grandiflorum – Glory Pea

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.
