DistributionCollected from Macon County in 1945 by Elsie Quarterman: 4.2 miles from Highlands on Bull Pen Road, 30 July 1945, Quarterman 1392 (KANU). There is no image at SERNEC and the specimen needs an ID check. A Wake County specimen, originally determined as A. bicknellii and annotated to striata in pencil, is probably misidentified.

Native from Newf. to B.C. south to DE, KY, OK, AZ, Mex.
AbundanceVery rare.
HabitatRoadside woods margin.
PhenologyFlowering and fruiting July-August.
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.
