The Hairy Bush Pea features dense, bushy growth and vibrant yellow-orange flowers with red markings that bloom in spring and early summer. This low-growing shrub is a fantastic addition to gardens, providing beautiful ground cover and adding texture to mixed borders. It's drought-resistant once established and plays a vital role in supporting local ecosystems by attracting pollinators such as bees. For all these reasons, this plant is an excellent choice for low-maintenance, water-wise, and native gardens.

Care Considerations:

While it's drought-tolerant once established, regular watering during prolonged dry periods can help maintain its vibrant appearance while mulching can assist in retaining soil moisture and suppress weeds. A light pruning after flowering can encourage a denser growth habit and more prolific blooming the following season. Fertiliser is not necessary as it's adapted to thrive in nutrient-poor soils, however if you do choose fertilise a low-phosphorus slow release fertiliser is recommended.
