Triglochin maritimum var. debile No. 5289. May 23, 1894, Johnson, Utah, 5000° alt., in alkaline clay. Flowers simply racemose on the slender, weak stems, which are 6-12' high; roots very thick; leaves all radical and short. This plant is much smaller than T. palustre, but in the characters of the flowers and fruit certainly belongs to T. maritimum. Watson's T. palustre of King's Report is a taller form of the same. This grows on clayey alkaline flats at Johnson, Utah, where no other plant will grow.
