Interesting to see these grasses growing on such harsh conditions of strong winds, salty soil

Hi all,
Interesting to see these grasses growing on such harsh conditions of strong winds, salty soil
In temperate regions what would be the Coconut Palm/ Mangrove zone in the Tropics is largely comprised of mono-cotyledons, many of them grasses.

The two most prominent ones are Marram grass (Ammophila arenaria) on coastal <"sand dunes"> and the Cord or Rice-grasses (Spartina spp.) in <"salt marshes">.

cheers Darrel

I couldn't find a way to climb up. This is a zoom in from foot cliff

Locals say you can eat this fruit when it's ripe. It has sour taste and I dare not to try

Passionfruit. Perfectly safe to eat.

Those red rocks/cliffs are spectacular. Nab some for scaping?

Beaten by Darrel, of course ;)

My in-law tasted it. She confirmed it’s sour

I wish I would be able to but these rocks are way too high from my reach

Nice. You can certainly draw some inspiration for scapes and other things from nature.
