Author's notes

I am thinking this is an Einadia sp. not sure whether there is enough information to ID it to species, growing in a rocky site very close to the ocean.

There are a couple of exotic Atriplex species around too, prostrata and patula, but comparing your photos with mine of all three species, I'm pretty sure yours is the native australasica. The weedy ones tend to be found in estuaries more.
