Brief Summary

Read full entry
Lyme grass is one of the three major grasses that are important for dune formation. The other two are sand couch and marram grass. In the Netherlands, marram grass is far more dominant, but further north it is lyme grass that holds down sand. This grass has a greater tolerance for salt and a greater need for nutrients than marram grass. Therefore, it generally grows along floodmarks.
