This shrub is usually seen in extensive colonies as it spreads by underground rhizomes.
Above ground it appears as a plant with few stems and is rarely more than 1m tall. The
white or cream flowers are in loose spikes, and the buds, like the ensuing woody fruits, are
guitar-shaped. The leaves appear fernlike, but are leathery to the touch, and are pinnately
divided once or twice into long slender feathery lobes
Flowering in summer. Cultivation - propagation is from seed or cuttings. Established
plants may benefit from pruning.
