Distribution and occurrence: chiefly north from Botany Bay; rare in the Sydney area. Most populations in the Sydney region recorded in the 1890s from La Perouse, Centennial Park, Rose Bay and Belleview Hill have probably disappeared as a result of development pressures. The last Sydney record is from Botany Bay in 1911. Main extant populations occur north of Port Stephens.

Grows in wet sandy heath on the coast and adjacent plateaus.
