The closest I could get was this, in Weber's, however one small niggle I have about a few of the photos is that there is no sense of scale for the smaller stuff and thus anything can look absolutely huge with a macro lens.

This plant is quite common.

Is it?

Very common in Pembroke together with Inula crithmoides and the glasswort which has a difficult species name !!
