Where is Asclepias viridiflora?

| No Comments

Over the years I have made several notes about locations of Asclepias viridiflora individuals. I have not noted the species at Staffanson Prairie Preserve. I've copied notes below. I can show you where these plants are (on a map or live)...

I have mapped an Asclepias viridiflora individual at NRRX. No notes, just the location.

I have collected several seed pods from A. viridiflora at the landfill. Here are the records...
Landfill 9/5/1997 26 seeds 1 pod 4 planted at TP plot
Landfill 9/5/1998 3 pods

Finally, here's a note from my visor from earlier today. The yellow flags are at your prairie turnip plants.
