Kennedia prostrata

Kennedia prostrata is a dryland creeping plant which, given good conditions will become a dense, flat ground covering plant. In particularly dry areas it is a little sparse, but given more than 350 mm rainfall, the plant will cover an area quite well, up to 3 metres across. Ants will carry the seed around and sometimes more plants will pop up around the garden. As can be seen from the photos, well grown plants are attractive in flower.

This species grows in acid to alkaline conditions, is moderately frost tolerant, and can be trimmed if necessary. It flowers from winter through to early summer, depending on the area. More information can be found here and here.
