This is a very low growing plant of the muddy shores. It grows in the shorter vegetation of the salt marsh and you often need to stoop down to see the myriads of small pink flowers without stalks.

It is almost entirely coastal in its distribution and is found at virtually every part of the English, Welsh, Scottish and Irish coasts. You can sometimes also find it where salt is mined inland.
