Salicornia or glassworts are common components of salt marshes throughout
temperate and tropical world. There is also one species found on saline soils
in west-central North America (roughly, northern short grass prairie regions).
The plants are very fleshy and make a nice salty-pickely nibble or salad
garnish. I suspect that you would find more info in Stalking the Wild
Asparagus or Stalking the Blue Eyed Scallop.
