dwarf arctic butterweed

Publication: Novon. 9: 457. 1999.

Origin: Native

selected vouchers: WTU

Notes: In Washington, Senecio cymbalaria, now Packera cymbalaria, are misapplied names referential to a species distributed in the Arctic.

FNA20: "Packera contermina grows in rocky areas and produces relatively short rhizomes and abundant thin fibrous roots. In mesic sites, the rhizomes are more robust and the fibrous roots are fewer. This taxon has been treated as part of P. cymbalaria or P. subnuda. Morphologic and cytologic data lend support to its recognition at species rank."
