Please provide as much information about specimens as possible. Details are helpful in determining the identity of a plant. Please include where, when, and by whom the specimen was collected, general features of the plant (e. g., tree, shrub, perennial herb, annual herb, flower color, etc.), whether it was cultivated or not, and if wild, the habitat from which the specimen came.
