Wild carnation, a perennial herb plant
The Upper Normandy coastline constitutes a unique landscape of vertical cliffs stretching over 130 km in length. The term Alabaster Coast refers to the white color of its chalky cliffs. The flora and vegetation of these cliffs present great specialization and certain morphological adaptations to resist the winds and salt spray which constantly sweep the walls and the top of the cliffs (dwarf, fleshy, densely hairy plants). Among them, the Dune carnation (Dianthus armeria) brightens these with its five pink petals and spreads a subtle fragrance. The specie is in danger so it is forbidden to take it home.
