Puccinellia maritima (saltmarsh grass)

saltmarsh grass habitat

Has long runners which help to stabilise the mud and maintain the plant’s ecological position

Rolled leaves reduce transpirational losses and reduce the throughput of salty water through the plant

Mycorrhizae on roots help Puccinellia get nutrients in a nutrient poor environment
