Previously known as Sebastiana chamaelea, this is a creeping native herb of sandy places. My experience of this herb has always been in coastal areas. The fruits are unmistakable, with the reddish protuberances. Also, the way the numerous male flowers are arranged in a spike above the few female flowers is quite distinctive, and explains why the fruit develops the way it does.
