you could use different colours, e.g.,

x1 <- rnorm(100, -2.5, 1)
x2 <- rnorm(100, 0, 1)
x3 <- rnorm(100, 2.5, 1)
x <- c(x1, x2, x3)

plot(density(x))
rug(x1, col = "red")
rug(x2, col = "black")
rug(x3, col = "blue")

or something like the following:

plot(density(x))
len <- 0.005
ds <- 0.001
segments(x1, -1, x1, 0)
segments(x2, 0 + ds, x2, len)
segments(x3, len + ds, x3, 2*len)

I hope it helps.

Best,
Dimitris
