Subshrubs, mostly to c. 30 cm high, often several stemmed from base and resprouting after fire etc. Leaves usually more or less concolorous, with appressed silky hairs, densely below, usually less densely (rarely glabrous) above. Hairs on floral tube appressed, to c. 0.5 mm long.
CVU, DunT, EGU, HNF, HSF, OtP, VVP, Wim. SA, Qld, NSW, Tas. Locally common in grasslands and grassy woodlands of the volcanic and northern plains; present, but rather rare in montane woodlands in the east.
Pimelea curviflora vars. gracilis and sericea were combined under the name Pimelea curviflora var. 1 in vol 3, Flora of Victoria (1996) and earlier versions of VicFlora, but further investigation suggests that the two varieties, in the vast majority of cases, are readily distinguished.
