Comments:
Atriplex nummularia is a common plant of inland Australia where it is an important forage plant. It is usually found on saline, clay soils in low lying areas such as flood plains. It produces small flowers throughout the year which are wind pollinated. Male and female flowers occur on separate plants. The female flowers are in dense clusters along panicles about 20 cm long and the male flowers are in disjunct globules at the end of branches. Three sets of images were taken at different dates to show the maturation of the flowers.
