You may or may not know that

You may or may not know that Sea Holly was historically believed to be an aphrodisiac in Elizabethan England. This is a nice example....all the plants I have seen in Cornwall at this time of year have been dead and dried up.

sporadic in Lowestoft

sporadic in Lowestoft Suffolk, south to Benacre but often killed by tide influxes in winter. Lowestoft and Gunton Warren is more secure and many plants are found here
