Solanum laciniatum

Solanum laciniatum is a soft-wooded shrub native to the east coast of Australia, notably Victoria and Tasmania. It also occurs in Western Australia[1] and New Zealand, where some authorities consider it to be introduced. It is similar to Solanum aviculare, with which it shares the common name kangaroo apple.

The shrub typically grows to a height of 1 to 4 m (3 ft 3 in to 13 ft 1 in) and blooms between January and February producing purple blue flowers.[1]
