Does Spartina secrete salt?

It’s a grass like vegetative organism that consumes the seas salty water

I’ve heard it secretes the salt from leaves to stop it clogging up the plants system

And the salt is visible

Could anyone confirm this?

it would also be useful to know what kinds of Spartina (or other salt secreting plants) and where it grows on

The Fylde coast Lancashire, England

in the areas where thee sea wall does not impede it of course
