Information

This location highlights the Saltbush species also known as genus Atriplex. These plants are an extremely common herbaceous shrub predominantly in arid Australia. There are four types of fruit-bearing saltbush shrubs at this site and they include: Bladder saltbush (Atriplex vesicaria), Lagoon saltbush (Atriplex suberecta), Pop saltbush (Atriplex leptocarpa) and Oldman saltbush (Atriplex nummularia). These plants have a high salt tolerance and salt content, therefore giving them the characteristic salty taste.
