  • Meet at the Blue Chair
Silphium brachiatum

Professor Jon Evans will lead the Tennessee Native Plant Society on a hike off-trail to explore some of the benches leading down into Lost Cove from Point Disappointment. They will look for late summer bloomers, including the state-listed Silphium brachiatum. The emphasis for this all-day excursion will be on exploration of the flora of these habitats just below the escarpment on the Cumberland Plateau. Meet at the Blue Chair Café in Sewanee for this moderate-to-difficult hike. Bring lunch and plenty of water. Contact Mary Priestley, 931-598-0157, for more information.

Directions are available on the Herbarium website, under the calendar of events.
