For those who dispute that Spartina doesn't exist on Hoylake Beach (and Meols)... LOOK BELOW, photographic evidence with local landmarks shown.
Frequently found in coastal salt marshes - which is what Hoylake Beach is on the verge of becoming. They vary in size from 0.3–2 m tall.
Aggressive, aquatic species that invades mud flats, salt marshes and beaches, out-competing native plants, spreading quickly over mud flats and leaving large Spartina meadows.
Wait until Spring, this species will start to grow abundantly after being dormant in the winter months.
No need for any further words!
