The sand dunes of Erissel – the Socotra east cape – have some very specialized plants thriving in the wind-swept sand. This species was in some places growing so dense that it seemed like a silvery thicket.

Atriplex farinosa (Chenopodiaceae)

This location is windswept and hot, with only rain or brackish water available, but this is a specialist and I believe it is endemic.
