Very spiky, it's been hanging around ours for as long as I can remember




Looks a bit like Grevillea but I'm not sure.

Does it have thorns or spines? if so, it could be Hippophae, (buckthorn).

This could be Grevillea Juniperina. Does it have a red claw type flower, about 1" big?

This looks a bit like the plant that garden centres sell as Asparagus fern. Usually in the indoor section.

It's asparagus fern, as Treesandthings has said. I have some myself - Asparagus densiflorus.

It gets little white flowers, usually in late summer, followed by red berries.

It's regarded as a weed here in Oz - so you have to keep it contained.
