i was wondering if anyone could help me ID this plant
this was in my last garden, grew to about one metre high, wasn't very bushy

it had a pea like flower, and the seeds were flat flakey and brown

Looks & sounds like Polygala virgata.

Possibly Swainsonia? Often seen on roadsides and remnant bush.

Establishing good groundcover means that competing weeds are suppressed, soil erosion is slowed and more water gets into and stays in the ground.


Palmetto Soft Leaf Buffalo is ideally suited as a lawn in many applications.
