    sarr of fort jackson sc

    i got permission from ft jackson people to take photos and count the plants around one pond that they knew sarr grew..it was so over grown i had a very hard time finding what few plants i did..if the wheather is good in the next few weeks here i'm going to wade the pond..or wait till spring..the first 9 pics are of plants only a foot tall and not too clumped...the rest of the photos are of plants just a little over 2ft..i hope i can find more..so far i have counted only 12 plants..very sad...the brush and weeds seem to be choking the plants out...



















    this clump was growing up the side of the tree..it was rooted to its own dead roots..

    That place needs to be burned ASAP! S. flava should not look that spindly.

    Awesome stuff! You're lucky to live within driving distance of this population... I still haven't seen any CPs in the wild.

    great to see seedlings there-I bet a good fire could clear the whole thing out and that site will look great in a year or two. There's probably a bunch of rhizomes hiding under the grasses.

    Thanks for sharing!

    Thanks for sharing your pictures; it is great to see them out in nature.

    I attended basic training at Ft Jackson in the mid-80s, boy do I feel old now.....
