It is commonly found in coastal regions from South Australia all the way up to Cardwell in Queensland. It is a prostrate growing ground cover plant of the family Amaranthaceae that grows to around 180 cm wide, and flowers year-round. It is tolerant of saline and dry conditions making it commonly used as an animal feed source in poorer agricultural areas: it is grazed by livestock, and birds are fond of its fruits. It is also a good species for erosion control.
