The slender, spreading leaves, up to 30mm, are densely crowded along the stems. The stems themselves are covered by brown stipules, leaf-like scales up to 10mm long.
The flowers are densely clustered at the end of the stems. The clusters are about 3cm across.
Pultenaea stipularis flowers from September to October.
