I've got a few more plants I need a hand identifying. I ID'd She Oaks, wattles, pig face and ox tail but there are some that I'm none too sure about. All of these plants were within 1km of the beach if that helps.

1. This was quite common in the dunes


2. This was in large carpets in the swampy forest behind the dunes (second photo)


3. I remember as a kid we used to throw this fine leafed plant in the fire and it would pop. No idea what it is


4. Also very common on the dunes


Thanks in advance for your help!

Cheers
Phil

Hi,

Here's a couple of ids:

2. native violet

3. introduced decorative asparagus vine...the red berries are poisonous. Very invasive

4. looks like a dianella. blue/purple starry flowers with yellow centre followed by mauve edible berries

There are 2 books that make plant ID for people in Brisbane and surrounds easy.
#1. Wild plants of greater Brisbane, a qld museum guide.
#2. Mangroves to Moutains, by Leiper, Glazebrook, Cox and Rathie.
