Note: Don't be confused. They all are seabuckthorn! Sometimes, it is written as sea buckthorn, sea-buckthorn, seabuchthorn, sea-buchthorn or sea buchthorn, sometimes as seaberry or sea berry, sometimes as sandhorn, sanddorn or sandthorn, sometimes sallowthorn or badriphal and more...but never buckthorn. Buckthorn is an invasive species that comes from a different family. Seabuckthorn is related to buffaloberries that grow along riverbanks but have red berries and are extremely thorny...not unlike a porcupine!
