Scaevola taccada, or local known as Sea Oats, is an erect, spreading, evergreen shrub or small tree with somewhat succulent, soft-wooded, pithy stems. This bush with fleshy green leaves and a ‘split’ white flower is often seen on our rocky shores and sandy beaches where it is tolerant of salty spray. This plant is suitable as a hedge, screen, or even ground cover with pruning.
