Grey Parrot-pea is found in Coastal Heathland along the Jan Juc cliff tops as well as Heathy Woodland further south-west. It is an open, erect shrub to almost a metre in height with greyish foliage. It is tolerant of dry conditions and is generally found in semi-shaded locations and in well-drained soil.
Leaves are narrow-linear, greyish-green, variably smooth or sparsely hairy with a minute tip at the apex.
Flowering begins in late winter-early spring and is the first of the Parrot-peas to flower along the coast. Flowers are yellow and orange borne in terminal or axillary clusters of 1-10; hairy bracts and a sparsely hairy calyx can be clearly seen beneath the petals.
