Sizing guide

Brachysema or now known as Gastrolobium is a delightful Australian native shrub with vibrant red pea shaped flowers in late spring and summer.  Swan River pea is adaptable to a wide range of soils and climates in sun or semi-shade. It grows well in humid areas of the Australian east coast where many other plants from Western Australian do not thrive. Its flowers produce nectar attracting honey-eating birds and it tolerates at least moderate frosts.  Useful in cut flower arrangements.

At maturity expect Swan River Pea to stand 2mt tall and 1-1.5mt wide. Although drought tolerant it will benefit from annual mulching.
