Gompholobium scabrum

Synonyms: Burtonia scabrum

  • Perennial to 150cm
  • Spectacular purple-pink pea flowers
  • Suitable for containers

Perennial shrub to 150cm tall with small leaves resembling rosemary that grow in groups of three. The shrub is covered in spectacular, brightly coloured purple-pink pea flowers measuring 2.5cm across in early spring, followed by attractive swollen seed pods. Native to southern Western Australia where it grows in sandy soils and windy conditions. Grow in a mixed border, native garden or as a feature shrub. Suitable to grow in containers. Also known as 'Painted Lady Pea'.


Note: Seeds of many native plants are dormant and will not germinate until ideal environmental conditions are met. Follow instructions for pre-treatment and sowing, and be patient; some wild harvested seeds can take much longer to germinate than expected.
