Star-Wort, the Sea, or Aster Tripolium, L. a native perennial, growing in salt-marshes, both on the sea-coast, and in those which are more distant from the shore : it flowers in the months of August and September. This vegetable is eaten by goats and horses; but is not relished by sheep, and totally refused by hogs. From its thriving in inland situations, the Sea-Star-wort has been conjectured to indicate the presence of subterraneous salt-springs.
