    Two things I sugest.
    1. New spiecies that for whatever the reson lives in a very small area and was wiped out in most of it's range by farmers when the US was just started.
    2. Have you looked into the plant-like kingdoms? You may have something that isn't really a plant but a member of one of the other 15 or so kingdoms of living things. Also, you might want to look at some of the less well known groups of plants such as mosses and ferns. These plants can get very big and plenty of them are sensitive. I live in MI and we had a fern here that would grab you if you touched it, but I can't remember what my mom called it. Now days that plant is nere impossible to find in the wild so don't give up your serch!
    ...Oh one more thought, see if you can fined data on extinct plants, sometimes they turn out not to be [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif[/img]
    There is no item greater in value than life, for without life value would cease to exist.

    I hope you figure out what it is now because i am getting to highper just waiting to figure out what it is although it sounds alot like a sensitive plant , keep askin and try to go to the place that your fiancee say it . how long has it been already , it should be quite along while but I'm sure its still there . can you ask your fiancee to draw a sketch and be more specific about this plant .

    Just a quick update. Had a bit of trouble locating the property, there has been alot of construction and rebuilding in the area. We have found the house... looks like the yard has been redone completely though... this is not looking promising. Also I am having trouble contacting the owners... I expect they are seasonal.

    When I find any new info I will let everyoneknow.
    I typo, therefore I edit.

    If you can find such a plant, it would be quite a discovery.
    A little off topic, I think there are only five Kingdoms of life, essentially they are

    Monera-the bacteria
    Protista-one celled organisms
    Plants
    Animals
    Fungi

    The latter three are self-explanetory. Life is fully categorized in the form of..
    Kingdom-Phyllum-Class-Order-Family-Genus-Species

    I am digging this from my BS in Biology from many years ago.

    Regards,

    Your a few years off, hang on I'll get my bio text (published last year, very up to date). The Kingdoms of life are:
    Diplomonadida
    Parabasala
    Euglenozoa
    Alveolata
    Stramenopila
    Rhodophyta
    Viridiplantea - used to be plantea
    Mycetozoa
    Fungi - used to be fungi
    Animalia - used to be Animalia
    Everything unlabled ^ used to be Protista
    Everything below used to be Monera (I don't have the full list of bacteria-like kingdoms, only those we know much about, sorry)
    Proteobacteria Alpha
    "" Beta
    "" Gamma
    "" Delta
    "" Epsilon
    Chlamydias
    Spirochetes
    Gram-positive bacteria
    Cyanobacteria
    Euryarchaeota
    Crenarchaeota

    The new ranking is (I'm not going to nit pick over the renaming of surtain levels or new levels added) But the above list sort of shows why we needed to make a new level lol. I mean, who the heck came up with the 5 kingdom thing? LOL Uh, plants, animals, fungi and erm all that other stuff.
