Rare flower back in the Netherlands


Salicornia pusilla

Translated from the Dutch FLORON botanists:

Thursday, September 15, 2011

Last week, one-flowered glasswort was found in the Netherlands. It is one of the three types of glasswort in the Netherlands. Of those three, one-flowered glasswort is the rarest species with a limited distribution along the coasts of northern France, Belgium, Netherlands, England and Ireland. In the Netherlands the species had not been found for over twenty years, and in Belgium, this species is even considered extinct!

This rare species was rediscovered on several spots in the Boschplaat nature reserve on Terschelling island.
