A twining or clump-forming forb or sub-shrub. Leaves are linear or arrow-shaped and somewhat fleshy. Flowers are tiny and visually insignificant, but are followed by bright red or yellow fruits. These are often present year-round. Each fruit contains a single dark seed.
Seed germinates well without treatment, though may take several weeks. Success from cuttings has also been reported.
Year-round, though mainly summer-autumn.
Common by roadsides and in reserves, but usually inconspicuous. Dense populations occur along The Gap Rd and several adjoining roads. Found in reserves throughout the region, e.g. Matong State Forest, Willans Hill, Mates Gully TSR, The Rock NR and most others.
