Leatherleaf Chamaedaphne calyculata (Linnaeus) MoenchThreatened (MD)  -  S1 (Highly state rare)  

Status:

Leatherleaf is a low, colony-forming shrub of peatlands, ranging from subarctic and boreal Alaska and Canada, Newfoundland and Labrador south to Georgia. (It does not occur in Virginia or West Virginia.) Boreal, relict peatland ponds in northern Anne Arundel County are the only stations in Maryland for Leatherleaf. It was historically known from similar communities in Delaware, but not from Maryland’s Eastern Shore, and is considered extirpated on the Delmarva. (J. Hill/MNPS)
