Solanum Symonii

Solanum Symonii 1

We recently noticed lots of this shrub growing in the bushland at Lake Joondalup, in Perth’s northern suburbs. It doesn’t look like much at a glance, but has delicate, semi transparent, mauve flowers.

There are also plenty of these interesting globular fruit hanging from long stems. The plant is called Solanum symonii and grows along the coast of Western Australia from about Geraldton to the South Australian border, and onwards along the SA coast.
