More than half of those are found in the United States, with about 7 native species. Agrimonia gryposepala is the most widely distributed of those native North American species, being found from coast to coast except in a swath of states from Montana to Texas - those in the Rocky Mountains.
It is also missing in Florida. It prefers moderately to very moist habitats.
The differences between some Agrimonia species are somewhat subtle. I think this is Agrimonia gryposepala because it has shiny, glandular hairs on the stem and inflorescence, I find no more than 5 major leaflets on the mid-cauline leaves A.
Differences between these two species are noted in the descriptions of the photographs. The species can be somewhat difficult to differentiate at a glance, with the keys to identification focusing on the type of hairs on the stems and leaves, and on the number of major and minor leaflets on the compound leaves.
Agrimonia parviflora is one of the more widely distributed species, found in moist areas of 29 states from the eastern Great Plains to the East Coast in the United States, as well as in Ontario, Canada. Agrimonia species can be very difficult to determine to the species, with only subtle differences between them.
Clearly is appropriately considered invasive. The leaves are trifoliate, looking very much like those of species in the Trifolium Clover genus. As with Trifolium campestre the stem of the terminal leaflet is longer than those of the lateral leaflets.
Leaflets of Medicago have a tiny tooth at their apex; those of Trifolium do not. The populations in the northern and southwestern states in the range particularly Ohio, Maryland, New York, Pennsylvania, Missouri, and Mississippi seem to be very limited - only 1 or 2 counties in each of those states.
It is Threatened in Ohio and Endangered in Maryland. There is a variety var. The inflorescence of var. The Heuchera genus is named for Johann Heinrich von Heucher, an Austrian-born botanist of the 17th and 18th centuries. There are two varieties recognized by Flora of North America - var.
The lateral leaflets in var. There are three varieties; the one with by far the widest distribution in the United States is var. The other two varieties are differentiated primarily by sepal length, anther length, and involucre bract shape.
In the past it was considered as a single species with two varieties some called them subspecies of Hepatica nobilis. They have also been classified in the past by some authorities as separate species in the Hepatica genus H.
Most authorities now consider these two plants to be separate species in the Anemone genus. The inclusion of listing the species in Florida may possibly be a relic of Hepatica nobilis, with var. In the past it was considered as a single species with two varieties some call them subspecies of Hepatica nobilis.
It is closely related to the European Anemone hepatica species. It is found in both deciduous and evergreen forests, frequently in drier areas than A. Angelica triquinata - Mountain Angelica - is one of four Angelica species found in the eastern United States 2 are only in eastern Canada.
It has a fairly narrow distribution, being found in the Appalachian Mountains from far northeast Georgia up through Pennsylvania. It is Endangered in Kentucky and Maryland. Of the other eastern species, A.
The species name of this last species speaks to the poisonous nature of the plant; there are also indications that A.
It is also native to much of southern Canada. It is listed as Endangered in Illinois. The Southern Weed Science Society considers it to be weedy in some areas.
Many species formerly classified in the Aster genus have been reclassified into Symphyotrichum and other genera within the Asteraceae family. This one was previously classified as Aster pilosus.Q: Where can I go online to see pictures and calls of frogs and toads? A: Here a couple of links to get you started: Our web page on Frogs and Toads of Florida.
U.S. Geological Survey -- Florida Integrated Science Center Whenever trying to I.D. frogs and toads, take a look at pictures and descriptions in various sources (field guides, web sites, encyclopedia, etc.).
Alabama. Marble Creek Farmstead in Sylacauga, AL is a sustainable family farm growing humanely-raised, all-natural pastured meats and eggs.
We have a diverse set of species doing rotational grazing on a acre farm with mostly open pasture and plenty of woods.
