Another coastal plant ID please



Does anyone know what this plant is please.


I found several on the shore at Hoylake, on the North bank of the Welsh River Dee estuary yesterday.

It forms dense rounded hummocks about one metre high and about one metre across. The leaves are about 10 cm across. No sign of flowers on it.

(It reminds me of a Geranium).


Capture2 shows the stems inside the hummock.


Is it a wild plant or a garden escape? Either way it is highly salt tolerant.


Could anyone suggest a good internet Identification source for UK coastal plants please. I find it all a bit hit and miss.


Many thanks
