Ground covering clambering winding to 600mm high; strings and clusters of small yellow flowers (new) and papery white+brown calyces. Found in very sandy soil just 'above' high tide level - a foreshore with mangroves.
Threatened species. Very attractive en-masse.
Native to the south-east coast of Australia including Tasmania inhabiting salty marshes and mud flats.
Common Names: Yellow Sea Lavender
Four of these butterflies seen on the same plant. I think this indicates a shortage of daisies rather than a surplus of butterflies. It is a totally degraded paddock except for one small patch of moderately degraded basalt plains grassland with about 20 Calocephalus.
