|Myoporum insulare at Black Rock, Victoria|
Myoporum insulare is a shrub or small tree which occurs on dunes and coastal cliffs in Australia. Common names include Common Boobialla, Boobialla, Native Juniper and, in Western Australia, Blueberry Tree.
It has thick, smooth green leaves which are 3 to 9 cm long and 7 to 22 mm in width with edges that are either untoothed or toothed toward the apex. White flowers with purple spots appear in the leaf axils in clusters of 3 to 8 and are 6 to 8 mm in diameter. Peak flowering times are July to February in Western Australia and October to December in south-eastern Australia. The smooth, rounded fruits are purple to black and 4.5 to 9 mm in diameter.
Myoporum insulare occurs in New South Wales, Victoria, Tasmania, South Australia and Western Australia. In New South Wales it occurs from Eden southwards, although an isolated occurrence was recorded much further north on Brush Island.
