This native grass is frequently found around the UK's coasts and beaches, especially in the south and west. It has tightly rolled, sharply pointed grey-green leaves, and produces large spikes of cream or pale yellow flowers in June. As a coastal plant, it is very tolerant of salt and sea spray, and grows in sand or very free-draining soil. The tough, spreading roots of this grass make it a useful tool to stop the erosion of sandy soil. In several areas of Guernsey, it has been planted just for this purpose to provide stability to shifting sands.
