Hordeum marinum   Sea Barley R DD N

Hordeum marinum Hordeum marinum close

This small native grass has the look of a Barley in miniature but is easily overlooked. Though Stace classifies this plant as rare, there are many sites for this grass around the south east coast of England and the River Severn estuary. The frequency of sites reduces markedly as you go north. It is not found in Ireland or northern Scotland.
