This is a fast growing, dense, shrub with a shiny dark green appearance, common in Nungurner. It will grow up to 2 metres and has a tendency to sprawl but is easily trimmed.
It is a good salt tolerant plant and also tolerates wet areas and shade. When left to grow between trees, the seaberry saltbush will help reduce weed growth and provide cover for lizards and small birds including the very shy buff-banded rail.
The small, glossy dark red berries appear in Autumn and inconspicuous whitish flowers appear from December to April.
