Yellow Horned Poppy (Glaucium flavum) - detail
The shingle ridge is one of the locations where the rare Yellow Horned Poppy (Glaucium flavum) - typically growing on bare shingle where it can form large colonies - can be found. It has colonised mainly the landward side of the ridge > LinkExternal link - LinkExternal link - LinkExternal link. Sea poppies are protected under the Wildlife & Countryside Act (1981) and must not be picked without permission from the landowner. They flower from mid-May until October but their flowers usually only last one day. After a flower has dropped, a long, curved seed-pod develops (believed to be the longest seed-capsule of any British plant) which eventually splits lengthways to reveal hundreds of small seeds. The plant's leaves are covered with fine hairs which protect it from salt spray.
