Abundant herb that reaches a height of 1 meter. It grows in humid areas rich in salt, such as those near the ocean, but also on dry terrain. The leaves are spear-shaped (lanceolate) and have a sharp tip that cuts the skin when brushing up against it. It produces a red fruit that grows in clusters and is used by shepherds to make a paint for their staffs. The leaves are used as feed for livestock.
