Please try our next iteration of the Michigan Flora Online here. Beginning on February 1, 2023, michiganflora.net 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.

Common Name: SLENDER YELLOW FLAX
Coefficient of Conservatism: 9
Coefficient of Wetness: 0
Wetness Index: FAC
Physiognomy: Nt P-Forb

Dry forests, hillsides, and sandy banks; also moist shaded ground, shores, and river banks. This species seems to have become much less common during the past half-century or so, with only a few collections made in Michigan since 1938. The inflorescence is more corymbose than in L. striatum, sometimes quite similar to that of L. medium.
