GGr. Endemic to Victoria. Known only from the Grampians region, especially Victoria Range, Serra Range, and Halls Gap area. Grows on stony loam soils. Regenerates from seed, not known to root-sucker.
Plants at higher elevations (e.g. Mt Abrupt) and more exposed sites may be smaller in all dimensions. This subspecies has been shown to have detectable amounts of alkaloids (Collins et al. 1990).
