This large shrub or small tree is a useful addition to seaside gardens since it tolerates very dry conditions and strong, salty winds. It is freely branching, often sprawling, and has fleshy, pale green leaves. The small, five-lobed white flowers appear on only one side of the corolla tube, leading to another popular name, "half flower". Its oval berries float for long periods, giving widespread distribution. Scaevola likes full sun and sandy soil but tolerates other conditions. Established plants are very drought tolerant. Very salt tolerant.

It is propagated by seeds or by terminal cuttings.

The white fruit is a fleshy drupe, 10 - 15mm in diameter. Young leaves - cooked as a potherb.
