Variable tree reaching 30 m in deep gullies. Phyllodes are lanceolate, to 14 cm. Cream ball-shaped flowers occur in spring and other periods.
A variable plant that may trail or climb or have a more upright shrubby habit. Only the trailing forms are suitable for ground-cover use. Stems may spread to 2 m. The narrow-lanceolate leaves are up to 10 cm long. The pea-shaped flowers are generally purple, but white, pink and pale mauve shades are known. They are seen in late winter and spring.
Perennial to 1 m high. Flowers of varying colours.
Tree to 30m tall. Bark on trunk and branches rough, finely fibrous, peppermint type, grey or brown; shedding in ribbons. Adult leaves 4.5-13cm long, grey-green or sub-glaucous, have a strong peppermint odour. Inflorescences 9-20+ flowered; buds pedicellate, ovoid to fusiform. Fruit cup-shaped, hemispherical or truncate-globose.
Rhizome long; shoots ± loosely tufted. Culms erect, terete, smooth, 10–50 cm long, ca 1 mm diam. Leaves shorter than culms; blade 0.7–2 mm wide; sheath dark brown, persisting as fibrous remains; ligule obtuse to rounded. Inflorescence erect, 0.7–3 cm long, with 2–6 spikes solitary at nodes; lowest involucral bracts exceeding inflorescence. Spikes sessile, ± contiguous, spreading to erect at maturity, to 1 (rarely to 1.5) cm long; all spikes gynaecandrous. Glumes acuminate to obtuse, mostly short- to long-mucronate, whitish to pale yellow-brown (rarely orange-brown) with green midrib; female glumes 2–3 (rarely to 5) mm long. Utricles broad-obovoid to ellipsoid, ± strongly several–numerous-nerved, often transversely wrinkled between nerves, 2.2–4.5 mm long, 1.0–2.1 mm diam., densely minutely hispid on narrowly winged margins and beak, green to yellowish; beak 0.3–1.1 mm long, with apex split. Anthers 0.8–1.6 mm long excluding appendage to 0.2 mm long. Style 2-fid. Nut obovoid to broad-ellipsoid, lenticular in cross section, pale to dark yellow-brown. Flowers spring–summer.
Erect shrub to 2m tall. Velvety leaves and branches. Flowers rusty red and green.
