Silphium terebinthinaceum var. luciae-brauniae (Lucy Braun's Rosinweed)

9.00

Very rare and virtually unknown there is little information to put down here as almost nothing is known about this plant in cultivation. It is similar to the typical prairie dock (Silphium terebinthinaceum) except that it is smaller over-all. How much smaller? Not sure yet. The plant comes from remnant prairies in Southern Ohio and Northern Kentucky that may predate glaciation when heavy browsing by large mammals made being smaller and advantage. Full to part sun and average to dry, lean soils. Try something that no-one has ever heard of. Zone 5-7? Ohio ecotype.
