I always wanted to see the yellow flowering R. colemanii, which are supposed to exist in a few places along the Pea River in southeast Alabama. So I was glad that Ron Miller showed me one of these areas today at a place where AL 10 crosses the river. The flowering time was almost over and we only found a few flowers on two plants, but the side trip was still worthwhile, because I could collect old seed pods. Only much later I should realize that these plants were something completely different, namely natural hybrids between R. austrinum and R. colemanii. See also the entry under 14.4.2022.
