Pyne's Ground Plum

© 2009 Daniel W. Reed

Astragalus bibullatus is perhaps one of the rarest plants on the planet. Now known only from a few very small locations in central Tennessee. It was noticed and collected by the Tennessee doctor and botanist Augustin Gattinger, who, along with George Dury fled Germany in the 1800s, but the locations he may have found it in have been distroyed. It was rediscovered and identified as a new species by Milo Pyne in 1988.
