Native Plant Trust: Go Botany Discover thousands of New England plants


See list of 9 species in this genus

Cerastium velutinum was reported from New England by Morton (2005a) based on 
a collection from Franklin County, MA—29 May 1892, Churchill s.n. (MO!). However, 
the specimen, though vegetatively robust, has anthers, sepals, and petals too short for 
 C. velutinum. The specimen is our native C. strictum. Reference: Morton (2005a).
