Erect shrub 0.5-1.6 m tall (Weston 1995b).

Found from Picton to Kangaroo Valley, restricted to the area bounded by Buxton, Bullio, Fitzroy Falls and Kangaloon in central-eastern NSW. Localities at which this species has been collected include: Buxton; Hill Top; Nattai Creek, Welby; Kangaloon (Weston 1995b).

Grows in gravelly well-drained soils (Blombery & Maloney 1992) in dry sclerophyll woodland or forest on sandstone, from 400 to 650 m alt. (Harden 1991; Weston 1995b).

Flowers deep to pale yellow; flowering Jan. to May (Weston 1995b).

The following table lists known and perceived threats to this species. Threats are based on the International Union for Conservation of Nature and Natural Resources (IUCN) threat classification version 1.1.
