Salsola Linnaeus. Saltwort.

Key to Salsola

A genus of about 30 species, herbs, and shrubs, of Europe, Asia, n. Africa, and America. A proposal by Akhani, Greuter, & Roalson (2007, 2014) that would have resulted is use of the genus name Kali P. Miller for our taxa was overruled by the establishment of S. kali as the conserved type of Salsola.
