These plants are native to New Zealand, Australia and the island of Rapa Iti in French Polynesia. This genus is characterised by zigzagging branches, young plants are covered in hairs and stems appear darker upon maturity. Small, yellow flowers are produced in spring, in clusters of star-shaped blossoms and leading onto yellow, orange or red berries.
