Re: Re: Collecting/ number of plants??

Dan Hinkley recently wrote about a plant (Neiusia alabamiana)  in
Horticulture mag of which there were only a few populations.  This
Appalacian species has survived the ice age and when discovered in the 1800s
there were thought to be only 2 populations, one of which was later
destroyed.  New populations of possibly another species of this
thought-to-be-single-species-genus have been discovered out west.  Anyway,
the reason I brought it up is that they are thinking that, because it
suckers, that that entire eastern population they found, might actually be a
single plant.
