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.

CANADA HAWKWEED, KALM'S HAWKWEED
A. A. Reznicek
Dry sandy or rocky forests and thickets with oak, pine (sometimes other conifers), aspen, birch, as in jack pine plains and old dunes; grassy clearings, sedge meadows, burned sites, shores.
Some plants have roughish margins on the leaves, but not as rough (i.e., the projections not as long nor as dense) as in H. umbellatum; the line is hard to draw, and some authors combine the two.
This is the species to which the name Hieracium canadense Michx. is applied in many works, but the name H. kalmii is earlier.
Hybrids between this species and H. scabrum and H. umbellatum are known (and often suspected), and a specimen from Oakland Co. is a paratype of H. ×grohii Lepage (H. kalmii ×H. lachenalii).
