Author's notes

I'd pulled this out before I thought to photograph it, explaining the not very life-like position. Only saw the one plant, but then I only looked at a very small section of the beach.

I think this is potentially a bad weed that is on the move on south coast beaches. It needs to be removed whenever possible.

Unfortunately already well established on dunes at Tabourie and Murramarang beaches. Small ones easy enough to pull out. Larger ones need a long handled implement to gouge deeply.

If sand has built up around them over time, the stems and roots can be a long way down. They've been getting removed to good effect on far south coast beaches for several years now (along with spurge etc) - the beach weeds project needs to extend its range to the north.
