|Samphire (or pierce-stone)|
Halophytic plant, this plant is one of the few plants that can survive on rocks regularly hit by the waves. In fact, it is found easily on the rocks and cliffs exposed to the spray. Its fleshy leaves are edible and can be eaten raw in salads or cooked vegetables. It contains vitamin C, and it tastes like a carrot.
