romantic grass of the week: Spinifex Sericeus Beach Spinifex.. Yes its beach time. most interesting thing about this beach grass that holds the sand dunes together is the different flowers.. the female ones are globular up to 30cm in diameter and form tumbleweed seed like capsules that are transported by the wind.. and the male ones are a terminal cluster of spikelets.. silky hairy blades 35cm x 8mm found on beaches from FNQ to adelaide.. send me some photos when u at the beach.
