Crithmum maritimum   Rock Samphire C DD N

Crithmum maritimum

This plant is usually found very near the sea where the spray can reach it or the winter high tides touch it. There are many plants growing out of the sea wall just below the road round the Great Orme. This plant is widespread around the coasts of Britain but Stace says it is only native to the coats of East Suffolk.
