Salicornia depressa

From Natural History of Southeast Alaska
Jump to: navigation, search

Beach Asparagus (Salicornia depressa): There are several collections that resolve to this species in ARCTOS, however at least some of those may actually be Beach Asparagus (Sarcocornia perennis).

FNA distribution map has this species occurring throughout coastal BC and again on the east side of Cook Inlet, but absent in Southeast Alaska.

It seems like this species does occur in the region, but more investigation is need to clearly resolve the question.
