Upright multi-branched herb 20-60cm high with sticky green foliage and yellow papery flowers mostly in spring. A hardy wildflower found locally in dry woodlands and forests. An important species providing nectar for native butterflies and moths, and readily colonises after disturbances such as fire. Plants will reshoot yearly from the base and respond well to light pruning which encourages bushiness and extends longevity. Continually moist soils will decrease the plant’s longevity.
