Appalachian Arrowhead in Calvert Co., Maryland (8/19/2010). Per Kerry, "This plant is considered to have an Uncertain status in MD- meaning it could be common or rare. More survey work is needed to determine where it stands in the grand scheme of things. I usually find it in bottomland forests along the creek. You need seeds to determine its ID, though, which may be why it is overlooked." Photo by Kerry Wixted. (MBP list)
