Conservation status

SR-T; S1, G2G3 (as Packera crawfordii (Britton) A.M. Mahoney & R.R. Kowal).


Pine savannas.


Apr–May . Not seen in Shaken Creek Preserve by the senior author. Specimens seen in the vicinity: Sandy Run: LeBlond 6409 (NCU!; as Packera crawfordii ), Taggart SARU 10 (WNC!; as Packera crawfordii / Packera paupercula ), and Weakley 7216 (NCU!; as Packera crawfordii ). Whether the entity treated as Packera crawfordii deserves recognition as distinct (either varietally or specifically) from Packera paupercula s.l. is still unclear.
