Ruby Ruby Ruby Ruby Dock. The new weed in town.

With eyes like her mother 

and a smile like her daddy, 

there's no mistaking Ruby Dock’s pedigree. She’s the love child of Salvation Jane and Lantana.

Like her parents, she's named after a beautiful flowering plant which was introduced into Australia where it thrived to such an extent that it out competed the native flora and is now regarded as an invasive weed.  Ruby Dock, which is native to the desert areas of North Africa and India, was thought to have been introduced into Australia with camels in the 19th century as part of colonisation. It’s seeds are wind and water dispersed and it is commonly found along watercourses. 

Now Ruby Dock has blown into Camden and put down roots by the canal where it has already won fans who are delighted to find shady respite from the noise and congestion of the market.

But blink and you'll miss her as she's a pop up: in this location for 12 months only. During the day she’s serving up delicious breakfasts and lunches and of course, coffee and cakes, and when night falls and the tourists disappear, its wine, beer, cocktails and on trend hot dogs.

So come up and visit the new weed in Camden town.
