Miscellaneous Plants

Below are the common names of the 2 species of plants known to occur in the Natural Area Teaching Laboratory that do not fit in any of our established categories. Each name is linked to a record for the species that includes its scientific name, its status in NATL, and links to distribution maps, photographs, and further information. Because plants often have more than one common name, species may be listed here under more than one name.

Note: If you don’t find a two-word name under the first word, look for it under the second word. For example, you will find Wild Yam under “Yam, Wild.”
