Smooth Darling-pea (Swainsona galegifolia)

This plant has showy orange-red pea-like, long lasting flowers. Tolerates drought and some frost. Good habitat. Looks great as a single specimen plant or in mass plantings (1m apart). For best results, cut back stems each year in mid winter. Keep an eye on snail and slug numbers when new growth starts in late winter. Attractive addition to a rockery.
