Centaurea stoebe L. ssp. australis (A. Kern) Greuter[FNA, HC2]

Origin: Introduced

selected vouchers: WTU

Notes: FNA19 includes a brief reference to this taxon in the text for C. stoebe.

BC flora uses this interpretation, noting it is closely related to C. paniculata, but Chambers and Sundberg (2000) think the use of C. bieb. for our plants may be misapplied, and "needs further study".

References: (none)
