The Wombat Berry is a slender little climber, growing in rainforest of the East cost of Australia, from Victoria to Queensland. I have grown one from seed, and it has lived in my garden now for about seven years, but has never flowered. I suspect it likes rather more water than I have given it, as it is tucked away in an inaccessible corner.
