Note regarding the picture below: It was taken in my yard of a plant I had gotten from a friend's woods in Jefferson County. I since went back to the area when I first became aware of this species along the C and O above Dam Number 4. I managed to re-find some and Jane Hill posted a couple of pictures I took to document the species.
