Two-leaf hakea is found both on coastal limestone and the Darling Scarp, growing to around 3 m in height. It is unusual in having two types of leaves: The more numerous leaves are long, thin and cylindrical, ending in a sharp point. They often divide into three segments, giving the species name: tres “three” and furca “fork” from Latin. Less numerous are the wider, oval-shaped leaves. Flowers are prolific in winter and spring.
