Please try our next iteration of the Michigan Flora Online here. Beginning on February 1, 2023, will point to this new site.

The new site offers several benefits over the existing website, including real coordinate mapping, giving a clearer view of the density of documentation as well as more precision about plant distributions and their link to landforms. We will also have the ability to update species pages more regularly, both in terms of new collections and as more existing Michigan specimens are georeferenced. In addition, we have a better photo display, and offer indented keys.

S. farwellii of Michigan Flora.

Known only from a single collection (the type collection of S. farwellii) from Birmingham (O. A. Farwell 7625 in 1898, NY, BLH, GH), one sheet of which gives the habitat as “fields.” Said to be rare. Sisyrinchium farwellii (and the East Coast S. arenicola E. P. Bicknell) are placed under this species by Gleason & Cronquist (1991) and Cholewa & Henderson (2002).
