Endemic to Anaa and is the the dominant plant in some places. It grows right above the reaches of the high tide, and is battered by sea salt and wind. Some can grow to form beatiful bonzai trees. Those who grow on deeper soil can form 2-3 meter tall forests.

They are pollinated mainly by bees, which I saw all the time. They too are tough as they must endure strong winds and salt spray from the ocean at times.
