|Occurrence data from AVH|
It is a prostrate or twining shrub which can spread to a width of 1.5 metres (5 ft) and has light green leaves that comprise 3 rounded leaflets with undulating edges. Scarlet pea flowers are produced singly or in pairs between April and November in its native range. These are followed by cylindrical pods that are 3–5 centimetres (1–2 in) long.
It is native to the states of Western Australia, South Australia, Tasmania, Victoria and New South Wales. However, Jeanes (1996) states that it is found in all Australian states, except the Northern Territory.
