I found this at Majjesa last March and I do not remember much except tht it was most probanly prostrate ...any ideas ?
I think it was growing on clay slope not too far from shore
I realize picture quality isnt up to much either...

at first glance it looks the shape of a strange acanthus (not mollis of course) species. I am afraid that this is bread for weber, however i will do my research too later.

You always manage to take photos of strange looking plants! It seems to be an Atriplex like species! Its better to ask the experts!

ok- could be a young Atriplex prostrata, but I prefer more Beta maritima
