Lisa is there a possibility that this is a planted shrub?

This is a roadside plant, so I don't think so, unless it's an escapee that has spread (the closest house is not really close - maybe 100m+?) I first noticed this striking pea on the roadside verge last year (sighting 435859), and this year - a bit later in the year - the flowering plant was further up the road. There are a number of plants, quite bushy, on both sides of the road, over maybe a distance of 500m?

Nice that someone else has seen this plant. It certainly grows along roadsides and also seems to be associated with Allocasuarina nana heath.

Thank you for the ID. In this instance, there are no Allocasuarina close by, but interesting to know.
