A. A. Reznicek
A scattered escape from cultivation along roadsides and neighboring forests. First collected in 1927 in Genesee Co.
This is an old fashioned garden plant, less cultivated today that other species, but often found spreading around old homesites, and where dumped long ago.
The broad, flat leaves do not start growth until the spring, and therefore usually have their tips intact, showing the characteristic abrupt taper to a prow-shaped apex.
