Delicate Pomaderris is a shrub 1 - 2 m tall. Its leaves are ellipse-shaped (to 3 cm long and 1.5 cm wide). The under-surfaces of leaves are covered with grey star-shaped hairs and a few simple hairs on the veins. The spring flowers are golden yellow and have petals (unlike some other Pomaderris species).


Delicate Pomaderris is known from only two sites; between Goulburn and Bungonia and south of Windellama (Cullula).

Habitat and ecology

  • At both known sites the Delicate Pomaderris grows in dry open forest dominated by Eucalyptus sieberi with a dense she-oak understorey. Soils are shallow and derived from sandstone and siltstone. Nothing is known about the response of the species to fire and other disturbance.
