Some Garden Escapees.. Not all though, these were on the Coastline down the border of Qld/NSW.

Poinsettia



No idea what this cute one is.



Lantana.



No idea..



This one is certainly a beach one though..

They certainly do Cheryl and are as tough as old boots.

Especially these that grow in the sand and salt air it would have to be a native I reckon.. Very Happy

Thanks girls I knew they were all weeds but thought they escaped from our gardens.
Not the gardens of the entire world gasp

When you see so much of this on the Coast line it screams WEEDS
Mountains of the stuff I wonder why the two councils dont clean it up.



Gwen that link also had this one on it Senna pendula var. glabrata it was there too.



Fay I was just having a bit of fun... Laughing I did not take it as offence lol! lol!

Gail thanks for that name I am glad I did not bring any home I kind of felt it was a weed.. Very Happy

That yellow creeper flower (can't remember the photo number) looks like Black Eyed Susan, without the black bit.
