Comment/Acknowledgements: Despite the specific epithet, the leaves are almost always singly pinnate in our specimens. Rather variable in leaf shape and degree of division, and in the prominence or otherwise of the awns on bracts and calyx teeth. The combination of erect habit, pinnate leaves and large violet-blue corollas is characteristic among our species.
