  Bower Spinach
by ATXtraveler

Favorite thing: I always like to add a few information tips about the plants and animals I see along my path.

Here is a picture of Bower Spinach (Tetragonia implexicoma), which is a common bluff plant found along the Victorian coast.

It has a beautiful yellow flower, and there are smaller red berries which are great food for lizards and birds.

The main purpose of this vegetation is to prevent landslides from coastal areas, and it has protected Phillip Island's "Nobbies" Nature Park from soil erosion.

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
