Pacific Swampfire (Salicornia pacifica Standl.)

Also classified as Sarcocornia pacifica (Standl.) A.J. Scott.

Some populations of this species are reported by the USDA as perennial glasswort (Salicornia perennis), a species now thought to not occur anywhere in North America. We have found numerous sources derived from the USDA and/or other sources with such misidentifications, so be mindful that populations of this species can sometimes be referred to under that name.
