Sturt Desert Pea, Swainsona formosa photo taken in Western Australia a few years ago.
It's an Australian plant in the genus Swainsona, named after English botanist Isaac Swainson, famous for its distinctive blood-red leaf-like flowers, each with a bulbous black centre.
The Pea is also a wild flower in some areas of Australia, will grow in an arid environment. 
It grows low and is very pretty in a mass.
