A dense thorny shrub, the irena produces small, elongated, very sour-tasting, red fruit in summer. Much liked by animals, especially bodocs, these berries are consumed by the Matis only in the form of a sweetened marmalade since they are inedible when raw.

Its thorns can be crushed to recover an astringent substance. Its trunk is robust, but its branches are not, breaking at the slightest pressure.

It sports pink flowers, echoing with the same colours as its larger neighbour the salina, and exhales a sweet fragrance throughout the Forest in spring.

An ancient legend claims that Matis created the irena from the dorotea, yet no botanist is able of such a prodigy nowadays. However, the story still impresses visitors to the Majestic Garden!
