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.

Only from prairie soil in Kalamazoo Co., where C. R. Hanes first collected it in 1933. Only one or two multi-stemmed plants were known, but they were reported to have been there for over 25 years and they flourished for at least another decade. In 1941, one of the plants had over 50 blooming stems.
