This rare Arkansas endemic is a form of the more-widespread native H. villosa var. villosa, which ranges from New York to the Mississippi River. This form of the durable, evergreen H. villosa is not only tolerant of heat and humidity, but is purportedly much more hairy than normal...come to think of it, so are many of the people I know from the same region. This variety is only native to a narrow section of the Ozarks, where it can be spotted in rocky woods or hanging from sandstone cliffs. Our offerings are seed grown from a Newton County population. The large, hairy green, maple-shaped leaves form a large 2' wide x 18" tall clump. From August until fall, the clumps are topped with airy 3' tall stalks of small white flowers.
