Sea Blite - Suaeda linearis
Sea Blite is an herbaceous, upright plant that ranges in height from less than a foot to almost three feet tall. Its numerous branches are covered with dark green, fleshy leaves that are typically flat on one side and rounded on the other. The leaves and shape of the stems give this plant a spiked appearance. From August through October, Sea Blite produces clusters of one to three inconspicuous green flowers in the axils of its leaves. It can be found along salt marshes and sandy beaches.
