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.

Hieracium longipilum S. Farrington

Dry open often sandy plains and small hills, prairies, oak or pine savanna, sand barrens, dry fields.

This is our shaggiest-appearing hawkweed, with hairs toward the base of the plant at least 8–10 mm long and often twice that. As in other species, these are pale when fresh and deep tawny or rusty in color when several years old and dry. The phyllaries are mostly stalked-glandular throughout, while in H. gronovii they are stalked-glandular, if at all, only on the basal two-thirds.
