Brush Pepperbush (Tasmannia insipida)


Tasmannia insipida, commonly known as the Brush Pepperbush, is an Australian native plant with a distribution from the South Coast of NSW to northern QLD. It is cultivated as bush tucker, the red to purple berries are edible, and the leaves have a peppery flavour when crushed. It is found in wetter areas, growing in wet sclerophyll forests and cool to warm temperate rainforests.

It has a bushy habit and can reach 6 metres tall with a spread of 3 metres. In most garden settings, expect it to reach 3 metres tall with a spread of 1.5 metres. It is tolerant of most free-draining soil types and prefers shaded garden areas—drought and frost-tender.
