Weeds

This page lists the more common and conspicuous weeds found in coastal dunes, 29 of which are as described and illustrated in Professor Kingsley Dixon’s book ‘Coastal Plants – A guide to the identification and restoration of plants of the greater Perth region’, (second edition published 2020). The book is published by CSIRO Publishing and copyright to Cambridge Coastcare Inc.  Clicking on a scientific common name will open a copy of the relevant section in the book, complete with more photographs.  Clicking on the common name will link the relevant profile of the plant in the WA Department of Biodiversity, Conservation and Attractions’ Florabase. 

Photos and descriptions of 39 weed species can be found on Cottesloe Coastcare Association’s website – http://cottesloecoastcare.org/dir/weeds
