Wetland plants are mainly affected by geological and hydrological influences. The soil is limestone. it is hard during the dry season and too sticky to walk while raining. In addition, plants here are not easy to grow and mainly are shallow-rooted herbaceous plants. Because the land contains high salinity, the plants that can grow here are mainly salt-tolerant and drought-tolerant coastal plants, such as Saltwater Smut Grass, Purslane, Sea blite, and reeds. Among them, the Saltwater Smut Grass will change color with the dry and wet seasons. green in the rainy season and yellow in the dry season. The environment in the area is special, the trees are not easy to grow, and the plants are mainly shallow-rooted coastal plants that are salt-tolerant and drought-tolerant.
