Melicytus dentatus, common name tree violet is a shrub that grows up to 4 metres high and has branchlets that are often armed with spines and have leaves that are 5 to 50 mm long and sometimes toothed. The flowers appear in spring and summer and are pale yellow, 3 to 5 mm
in length, and have petals that are recurved at the tips. These are followed by pale green to purple-black, rounded berries which are 4 to 5 mm in diameter. The berries are consumed by Cunningham's spiny-tailed skinks.
