Bossiaea linophylla

Ultra-rare in the United States, this Spring-flowering shrub produces eye-catching pea-shaped blooms that drip from the tips of pendulous branches. The 1/2" flowers appear in MASSIVE clusters in an eye-catching color – brilliant yellow with bright red central highlights. They’re followed by brown, papery seed pods. This Western Australian native grows up to 6’ tall and 5’ wide with narrow, 1” long evergreen foliage. It thrives in sandy soil and coastal conditions – if you have clay please amend it thoroughly before planting or consider a large container (half wine barrel or bigger). Drought tolerant once established.
