pine barren ticktrefoil, Desmodium strictum

Here's a quick one before heading out for a county wildflower tour. There was a question about Thursday's ticktrefoil, which is now genus Hylodesmum. Not all, or even many Desmodiums have been corrected to Hylodesmum. Just the two wide-leaved woodland species, H. cuspidatum and H. nudiflorum. For that matter, not everyone recognizes the new division. Pine barrens in AL, AR, DE, FL, GA, LA, MD(E), MO, MS, NC, NJ, SC, TN, TX, and VA are home to this one. 7/8/19, Wakulla Co FL.
