The leaves are oblong to elliptical, 2 to 4cm long, with a leathery texture and short sharp tip. They are opposite or sometimes in whorls of 3 along the stem. The pea shaped flowers are bright
yellow and red, and are found massed at the end of the branches.
The main flower colour is yellow. Previously named as Oxylobium alpestre. The species was transferred to the genus Podolobium in 1995
