Stewardship Overview: This plant cannot be regarded as globally imperiled, but it is rare and worthy of protection and possibly of management.
More information is needed before management programs can be implemented, but it is suggested that opening of the canopy may be advantageous in some populations, and this should be investigated and experimented with.
Preliminary results from transplant experiments in Vermont are encouraging; it appears that seeds gathered in the wild can be germinated and grown under greenhouse/garden conditions and seedlings returned to the wild with at least some degree of success. More information from this experiment will be useful.
