Key to Tasmanian Dicots
1. *Rubus sp. (blackberry)
2. *Cotoneaster sp.
3. *Prunus sp.
4. Rubus gunnianus
5. *Sanguisorba minor (=Poterium polygamum)
This diverse family includes a range of native and introduced shrubs and herbs in Tasmania. The leaves are often compound or lobed, and the stems of many of the shrubby species have prickles or spines. The only native shrub species, Rubus parvifolius (Native Raspberry ), is easily confused with the common weed, blackberry (R. fruticosus), but has smaller leaves. Several herbaceous species are common weeds, e.g Sanguisorba minor (=Poterium polygamum).
