What's flowering in the park

Billardiera scandens

Apple Berry, Dumplings

Family: Pittosporaceae

Billardiera scandens is a climber common in woodland undergrowth, growing to about 3m in length.

The soft, pale green leaves are narrow and lance shaped, 3-5cm long, with wavy edges. They can have a furry appearance when young.

The bell-shaped flowers of Billardiera scandens are cream-yellow. A single flower droops from the end of the branches.

The common names for Billardiera scandens come from the fleshy, cylindrical fruit, which are very tasty when ripe, having turned from green to purple.

Billardiera scandens flowers from September to December.
