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.

Liatris squarrosa B. S. Slaughter

A species of dry fields, prairies, barrens, and savannas; apparently the only Michigan collections were made by O. A. Farwell in 1904–1914 at Palmer Park in Wayne Co. and Rochester in Oakland Co. One specimen bears an old but undated identification label by B. L. Robinson. It is well known immediately to the south in Ohio.
