A prickly shrub to 3 m in height. It has spirally arranged, thick, tough, succulent spike-tipped leaves. Flowering occurs in summer though some may be seen in winter.  Small flowers are followed by sharp pointed, dagger-shaped seed pods (giving the plant its common name). Found from Coffs Harbour through to the Budawang Range in New South Wales on sandstone soil-based heathland, and can form dense thickets with the Heath Banksia (Banksia ericifolia) and Scrub She-oak (Allocasuarina distyla).  Rarely cultivated but an easy plant to grow in full sun, it can be tolerant of poor drainage and its extremely prickly foliage can make a good deterrent. When planted in clumps, this species provides an excellent shelter for small birds and animals.
