Beach Spinifex

Beach Spinifex 1

We noticed this grassy plant growing on a sandy beach beside the Swan River in North Fremantle. It is called Beach Spinifex (Spinifex longifolius) and is common in sand dunes along much of the west coast of Western Australia. Those pompoms are flower heads, though not open at present.
