Daviesia nudiflora grows from 0.3 m to 1.5 m high. Its pea is an orange/yellow & red/brown and it flowers from June to September. It has flat phyllodes with pungent points, and the phyllodes are distinct from the stems. It grows on sandy soils, clayey soils and laterite, and is found on undulating low rises and flats.
The genus name, Daviesia, honours Hugh Davies (1739–1821), a Welsh botanist. The specific epithet, nudiflora is derived from the Latin: nudus (naked) and flos (flower), creating a compound Latin adjective to describe this "naked-flowered" Daviesia.
