Bursaria (Pittosporaceae) 1:57

Bursaria spinosa (native box) is the only species of this genus in Tasmania. It is a common native shrub that occurs in mainly dry areas. Most branches are very spiny, with spines arising in leaf axils (making them modified branchlets). The leaves tend to be clustered in groups of about three.
