Garden path suddenly overgrown.

Overgrown Path

Rain events in February 2020 transformed this gravel path in the woodland garden from bare to overgrown. The dominent plant is the Saloop saltbush (Einadia hastata). I bought about 20 of these local native plants in 2002 to form a ground cover. By January 2020 hardly any of the plants could be found. That has changed. [NSW Flora Online says the plant is Einadia hastata (formerly Rhagodia hastata) in the family Chenopodiaceae; Wikipedia says it is now Chenopodium robertianum in the family Amaranthaceae.]
Introduced Couch grass (Cynodon dactylon) is also spreading across the path.
I will hand-weed the gravel and whipper-snip the rest.
