While many of my ancestors were Confederates, I was born and lived most of my life in California. Now that I am living in the Carolinas, and am retired, I have started working on documenting the "Distinctly Carolina" native plants.
For the most part, the plants I am working on range from Georgia through South Carolina, North Carolina, Tennessee, Kentucky, West Virginia, and Virginia. Some range out to Texas, Arkansas, and Missouri, and a very few might be found in New England.
If any Southerners are interested in Distinctly Carolina Plants, please send me a message.
