A slightly woody plant with thick spade-shaped leaves. It had small 4-petaled yellow flowers which the gave rise to green and eventually red berries.
Coastal areas. Occupy coastal forests and shrubland.
I have seen this plant in so many locations but this is the first I've seen with flowers and berries. The thick leaves indicate perhaps that they are salt tolerant. The plant looks very like Warrigul or New Zealand Spinach (Tetragonia tetragonioides) and is easily confused for the latter. Although edible it is said to be less agreeable than New Zealand Spinach.
