Pisonia aculeata is a large, evergreen shrub producing climbing stems that can be 20 metres long and attach themselves to other plants by means of recurved thorns. The stems can be up to 16cm in diameter. Short thorny branches sometimes persist on the lower stem. The plant is sometimes harvested from the wild for local medicinal use.
