The Pseudoselago Serrata is a beautiful erect or sprawling shrublet with stout, angular branches that can grow to a height of 90cm, with crowded, hairless leaves about 12-25mm by 5-10mm in size that overlap like tiles along the stem. The bright mauve flowers with orange-yellow throat patch are found in dense flowering heads of up to 10cm in diameter. When fruiting, the separate heads elongate to resemble thin heads of barley, each producing a singular seed.
These flowers can be seen from October until February and favour cliffs and shrublands.
