The Story of the Streamhead Lobelia, Lobelia batsonii

A closeup of the Streamhead Lobelia (Lobelia batsonii).

Since the mid 1990s, references have been made to an undescribed lobelia in the Sandhills region of North and South Carolina. Albert B. Pittman of the South Carolina Heritage Trust was first to note that this lobelia was very similar to savanna lobelia (Lobelia glandulosa Walter) but differed in several points.
