Telopea 9: 319 (2001) APNI
Threat status:Victoria: data deficient (k)
Description as for species but usually a shrub to 5 (rarely to 10) m high. New growth conspicuously waxy and grey or white; leaves 1.5–8.5 cm long with pinnae 0.5–2.5 cm long, pinnules 0.7–4 mm long in 10–37 pairs. Flowers usually bright yellow. Flowers mostly Aug.–Nov.
MonT. Confined to subalpine woodlands and forests of the far east in the Bonang, Gelantipy areas at altitudes of c. 700 m and above.
Apparent intermediates exist between subsp. dealbata and subsp. subalpina. Some clonal populations of subsp. dealbata, developing from root-suckers, appear to be naturally of short stature and have probably sometimes been misinterpreted as subsp. subalpina which appears to be confined in Victoria to subalpine areas close to the NSW border. The distinction between the two subspecies is not always clear, and interpretation of herbarium records has probably led to a concept of subsp. subalpina that is more widespread than is warranted.
