The Narrogin Pea is a shrub growing to 80 cm when mature, that has abundant branches and branchlets that are mostly in false whorls. Branches are grey becoming brown, and younger ones have fine, whitish-grey hairs. Leaves are narrow or sickle-shaped and end in a 1.5-2 mm long sharp point. The green leaf blade, 15-17 mm long and 1.7 mm wide, is flat or slightly thickened. Younger leaves are greyish-green, with spreading white hairs about 2 mm long.

The main potential threats to Narrogin Pea include recreation and inappropriate fire regimes.
Inappropriate fire is also a threat and needs further investigation.
Drought appears to have caused death in one of the subpopulations within the conservation park therefore changes in hydrology may be detrimental to the species (Durell Buehrig; 2001 DEC; 2008).
