A ground-hugging or climbing sub-shrub with branches occasionally reaching 1 metre in length. Leaves are fleshy and 1-2 centimetres in length. The presence of fine white hairs on the leaves gives the plant a silvery appearance. Flowers are tiny and inconspicuous. Fruits are initially green but ripen to yellow and then pink or red. These are much more prominent than the flowers. Fruits of multiple maturational stages are often present simultaneously.
Seed germinates readily without pre-treatment, but may require cleaning. Reported to germinate from cuttings also.
Year-round, but chiefly spring and summer.
Principally roadsides and reserves west of Wagga Wagga, including Kindra State Forest, Campbells Ln. and Millwood Rd. Also Wallacetown.
