A deciduous shrub, similar in habit to C. arborescens. Leaves composed of nine to thirteen leaflets, which are obovate or oval, with a few flattened hairs beneath. Flowers yellow, produced three or five together in short racemes. Wing-petals longer than the keel.
Native of Asia Minor. Very similar to C. arborescens (of which it is perhaps only a geographical form) and to C. melanocalyx; it is chiefly distinguished from the former by the larger wing-petals, and from the latter by the unfelted calyx.
