Most plants have fruits, though some still have flowers (upper center & left), despite the rather late season.

End of season for most species, but weather conditions in September on the northerly Romanian shores of the Black Sea are probably similar to summer conditions on the shores of the Baltic. Some Suaeda plants are still thriving, while the rest has turned to fall colors.
