Description

A tuberous rooted sprawling shrub, up to 40 cm. The leaves are divided and the margins of the leaf segments are dentate. They are subtended by large, broadly ovate stipules. The umbel-like inflorescence bears up to 6 very striking flowers, the colour varies from cream to pale yellow to pink, with beetroot-red streaks on the two much larger upper petals. 'suburbanum' refers to towns and cities and suggests that this species was first collected in an urban area; 'bipinnatifidum' refers to the pinnatley dented leaves
