Rigid dense small hard shrub.

Sorry, no images to display

This compact hard shrub is endemic to both the North and South Island where it is typically found along coastal lowlands in open scrub areas, cliff faces, stable sand dunes as well as river flats.

It has many thick tapering grey speckled branches which bear clusters of upward-pointing small dark green oval shaped leaves. Its bell shaped flowers are very inconspicuous, underneath the branches. Its fruit appears in late summer until early winter in the form of small bright white berries.

It is very hardy and ideal for windy situations. Very drought tolerant once established. Does best in open, sunny and free draining soils.
