This specimen has been received and accessioned into Rod’s herbarium. We have also sampled it for DNA sequencing.

Thank you, Jon.

This looks like it might be something new…or a faded example of A. arkansana. May I see the herbarium material?

Very best,

Slightly bitter, mild flavor raw (spat out) with an astringent aftertaste.
Smell is faint but a little like clean water.
Over 12 inches tall.
