Description: From cultivation, a narrow foliaged variety of the well known native Butcher's Broom, which is only known in its female form in gardens. An upright form to around a meter tall with up to 20 short branches bearing ovate-lanceolate spine-tipped cladodes (more than 2.5 times as long as broad) around 3 times as long on average in this form. Bearing on the upper surface tiny white and purple flowers in the cooler months of the year, followed by plump red berries on short stalks if pollinated. A sub-shrub arising from a woody rhizome, with new stems produced annually, which persist for 2-3 years then best pruned away. Best grown in light to dark shade, in most types of moisture retentive soils, although very drought tolerant.
