Madia glomerata Hook.
Common Name: MOUNTAIN TARWEED
Coefficient of Conservatism: *
Coefficient of Wetness: 3
Wetness Index: FACU
Physiognomy: Ad A-Forb

Native in the far West, and rarely adventive. Collected in 1929 in River Rouge Park, Wayne Co.

The phyllaries and inflorescences are stalked-glandular, and the plant smells of tar. It is a slender, nondescript, glandular-pubescent annual with lower leaves opposite and the upper ones alternate. Apparently a waif in Michigan, but recently collected along a roadside in Ontario just N of Lake Superior, so to be expected in Michigan again.
