Since I’ve had a few questions about saltbush, here’s a little more information for the curious.
Ruby saltbush (Enchylaena tomentosa) is my big success story in propagation so far, so most of what I have been planting is ruby saltbush.
This one is bladder saltbush (Atriplex vesicaria), named for the seed capsules which are like soft blobs with a seed inside! I love the silver grey leaves and this one grows a little taller than ruby saltbush. Dad collected seed for me and one of the plants I grew from the seed he gave me is now large enough to be seeding.
I am not entirely sure what this plant is, but I have succeeded in propagating it a couple of times and now it is seeding freely. It is widely planted or native to the parklands here. I think it might be Maireana enchylaenoides (wingless blue bush)–or Maireana brevifolia (Short-leaf Bluebush).
This one is still a mystery! There’s a lovely guide to plants in parks here, beautifully named Parks for Us All–and the saltbush and similar plants are in the Chenopodiaceae if you scroll down from here.
