Beach Asparagus (Sarcocornia perennis): Only one collection identified as this species in ARCTOS, though more as Salicornia virginica, which presumably are of this species.

Taxonomy of this group is apparently a little confusing. FNA has 'all Salicornia spp as annuals, with Sarcocornia spp being perennial.
