"Verticordia habrantha" is a species of slender and spreading shrub found in Southwest Australia. It is commonly referred to by the name Hidden Featherflower. Ranging in height from 0.15 to 0.7 metres high, the habit of the plant is spindly. The plant presents white and pink flowers sometime between August to December. "Verticordia habrantha" is found on sandy soils, or those containing clay.The habitat of the species is sandplains and stony hillsides that are seasonally wet.The distribution is southern districts of Southwest Australia.

The first description of this species was published by Johannes Conrad Schauer in Lehmann's "Plantae Preissianae" (1844), from a specimen collected by Ludwig Preiss. [Lehmann, J.G.C. (1844), Plantae Preissianae 1(1): 100 Type: "In solo subarenoso inter frutices planitiei secundae cis fluvium Gordon (Hay). Fl. Novembri. Herb. Preiss. No. 169"] In the 1991 revision of the genus "Verticordia", Alex George nominated a lectotype from the Preiss collection; this was obtained near the Gordon River. George also names "Verticordia umbellata", given by Turczaninow, to be a synonym.

"Verticordia habrantha" has been assessed as unthreatened by extinction.
