DistributionCollected from Macon County in 1945 by Elsie Quarterman: 4.2 miles from Highlands on Bull Pen Road, 30 July 1945, Quarterman 1392 (KANU). The specimen at SERNEC is misidentified (probably A. rostellata). A Wake County specimen (Buell s.n. NCSC), originally determined as A. bicknellii and annotated to striata in pencil, is also misidentified. Therefore, A. striata should be deleted from the NC flora.

Native from Newf. to B.C. south to DE, KY, OK, AZ, Mex.
AbundanceNo verified NC records. The editors have moved the State Rank from SE (exotic) to SRF (reported falsely).
HabitatNone for NC.
PhenologyFlowering and fruiting July-August elsewhere.
IdentificationAccording to Gleason (1952), Roadside Agrimony stem has short glandular hairs, but the inflorescence rachis does not. The leaf undersides are conspicuously glandular beneath. The stems also have non-glandular, spreading hairs. This species needs to be keyed carefully for proper identification.
