Ammophila arenaria - Marram Grass
We are specialist growers of Ammophila arenaria - Marram Grass plants from British seed for coastal erosion projects.
Marram Grass is our native coastal grass and it does a fantastic job of helping to stabilise sand dunes protecting coastal defences.
It grows from a network of underground rhizomes which give it a sturdy anchor to the sand and allow it to spread upwards.
Growing in stiff, hardy clumps the foliage is grey green in colour and it produces light brown flowerheads.
Suggested planting density: 5 plants per square metre.
