Lactuca tatarica (L.) C.A. Mey. ssp. pulchella (Pursh) Stebbins[HC2]
blue lettuce

Origin: Native

selected vouchers: WTU

Notes: FNA19: "The type of Mulgedium pulchellum may be conspecific with that of M. tataricum (Linnaeus) de Candolle, a Eurasian species. Or, if "perennial" plus "Fl. blue" constitutes sufficient description for valid publication of the name Lactuca oblongifolia Nuttall (1813), then a new combination in Mulgedium based on that name may be appropriate for what is here called M. pulchellum."
