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.

Dry roadsides and railroads and in other disturbed places. A Eurasian native, first collected in Keweenaw Co. in 1883 but still only very local with us. We follow Applequist (2002) and Hansen & Christensen (2009) in applying this name to our species.
