Sweet Bursaria

Bursaria spinosa spinosa Cav.

The coastal forms are known for being rather tall, while those found in subalpine areas can be almost prostrate. It is often multi-stemmed and has a rhizomatous root system, from which is can readily re-sprout after disturbance. The branches are usually spiny. The leaves are small (1–5 cm long), obovate and often clustered on the branches. In spring to summer it produces numerous small (1 cm across) white to cream flowers, which are nicely fragrant. Following this it produces characteristic purse-/heart-shaped seed capsule
