Description of specimen

About 10% of what we saw were already in flower, with about 20% about to bud, but most of it had not formed buds yet. There were many stands of it all along the road, some consisting of only 3-4 plants, while others may have had had as many as 200 plants. Those were within half a mile of Wilhoit Spring Park. And the further north we went, the fewer patches we saw. There were some plants on the property of someone with a lot of old equipment on their property and that was located about a half mile from Dart Rd. On the west side.
