Annual. Found in depressions.

Species

Suaeda moquinii

Taxonomy really varies for this plant. Some say S. moquinii = S. nigra, some say they are different species. Some say the plant is an annual, others say perennial, and some say either or! I fit the plant below into S. moquinii, relying on USDA data for the final determination.

Shrubby perennial found in uplands (these photos) and also depressions.
