Types of Plants
Salicornia europaea or glasswort is a halophytic annual dicot which grows in various zones of intertidal salt marshes. Salicornia europaea is highly edible, either cooked or raw. In England, it is one of several plants known as samphire (see also rock samphire). Samphire is usually cooked, either steamed or microwaved, and then coated in butter or olive oil.
Common salsify (Tragopogon porrifolius) also called "Oyster plant", "Vegetable oyster" or "Jerusalem star" is a plant of the Asteraceae family, cultivated for its root eaten as a vegetable. Today, salsify is practically no longer cultivated. Salsify sold in markets is often the salsify (Scorzonera hispanica).
Summer savory (Satureja hortensis) is the better known of the savory species. It is an annual, but otherwise is similar in use and flavor to the perennial winter savory. It is used more often than winter savory, as winter savory is thought to have a slightly more bitter flavor.
