Werneria incisa

This salt and mineral tolerant plant thrives here and has generated large mats close to the water.

Further down there is only naked shores which every odd years will be flooded. The last time was a couple of years ago when the desert got about 2 metres of snow in a couple of days.

Altitude: 4300.

Native range is Bolivia, Argentina and Chile.

Was previously Xenophyllum incisum.
