Furbellows

This elegant kelp plant can be recognised by its thin flat stalk and unusual bulbous holdfast. Its an annual plant - unlike other kelp plants it grows from scratch every year, and disappears every winter to be replaced again the following spring.

The smooth flat stalk and distinctive holdfast make this kelp plant easy to identify.
