Plant Notes:This taxon (as S. neglecta) is reported to occur sparingly across northern New York (House 1924). Mitchell (1993) and Mitchell and Tucker (1997) lump this taxon under S. media. Morton (2005b) in the Flora of North America, does not list New York as part of the range of this taxon. He does state, that this taxon "was rare in North America, but during the last ten to 15 years it has spread rapidly and become weedy." We have yet to find vouchers for this taxon from New York (BH and NYS searched).
