Edible berries?

Berries poisonous. One of its common names is Poison Peach. A pity I have signed off on the app. Your photo is better than any I have seen.

A colonising tree, acting a bit like a wattle. Lasts a few years only.
Berries loved by the Brown Cuckoo-Dove.
Small plants may perhaps be confused for Lantana due to the rough leaves.

I've pulled up so much lantana 'plants' that I would never make that mistake! And thanks Betty.
