Northern Prairie Wildlife Research Center
Except for a newly-established population at Hobe Sound National Wildlife Refuge, this species occurs only on small parcels of private land in a suburban setting. Plants at a private research organization and on a nearby golf course will likely be conserved; all other sites apart from the Hobe Sound Refuge will probably be lost to real estate development.
During construction of a road, a private research organization took cuttings of plants at the construction site and replanted them at Hobe Sound National Wildlife Refuge, thus establishing a new population there. Results from the first year are encouraging.
The recently established population at Hobe Sound National Wildlife Refuge will need continued monitoring, as will the population at the private research organization. Also needed is a plan to encourage conservation and introduction of the plant at protected sites in or near the plant's native range.
Bok Tower Gardens and Center for Plant Conservation: These private organizations have carried out a program to propagate plants for restoration of a disturbed population and have established a new population at the Hobe Sound National Wildlife Refuge.
Plan approved 7/1/87.
