October 9, 2006
I didn't realize this is a rare plant when I took this photo. Like many of the other Prenanthes, the flowers are not spectacular, but it is a wildflower so I took the photo --- being a rare plant was just an added bonus! Roan Mountain has many rare and endemic wildflowers. I was excited to find one!
