Limonium multiflorum is endemic to Portugal's west coast. It is has an area of occupancy of 900 km². There is no information on population size or trend available. However, trampling by tourists in the holiday season is the main threat to this species and it is unlikely that this will lead to a severe population decline in the near future. It is therefore assessed as Least Concern.
