On reading from books I came to know that the leaves are 0.5-1cm linear fleshy.
Flowers in globose clusters forming spikes.
Seed character difficult to check here.

For Id 180309JM1 : 4 posts by 2 authors. 2 correct images as above.

Seen in the mangroves & along the dry tracts of islands in saline water.


The first one seems to be Tamarix gallicathe second may be a Rhizophora species, but needs a clearer photo for proper identification


I think images were taken in an island in either Tamilnadu or Andhra Pradesh


it is Suaeda species probably S.maritima
